Thank you Elmo!

Bath-time has recently been a struggle.

And by "struggle" I mean a workout in which I (being 7 months pregnant) end up bathing a standing, screaming, crying, bawling, scratching, hitting little girl by dumping water on her head as quickly as I can get it over with.

But then the Easter Bunny came and left a basket filled with bath-time goodies, complete with Elmo on the packaging! Brilliant!

Shyla got Elmo bubble bath, Elmo fizzy tub colors, and foam words to play with in the bath.

She gets to choose 2 color tablets for each bath. She obviously started with blue.

And likes to hold the tablet rather than let it completely dissolve in the water.

This is just a random shot of her pretty toes. This time it was Daddy who made them pretty! What a guy! He thinks he has a future in this business!

It's hard to tell from this picture but we made purple water and then brought down all of the words to play with!

And lined them up. She is really good at recognizing most of the pictures.

And then we emptied the tub (and said bye-bye to the water) and she continued to play! Now that's the smile we used to see at bath-time!

Honestly, Kendra, how did you get that girl so cute?! So glad Shyla has turned a leaf on the bathing thing and hopefully, saved you (and your body!) from any more extreme bathing episodes!

Ayden went through a short not liking bath period too. Man do these kiddos keep us guessing and yes, thank goodness for elmo to get us through! That is certainly one happy, adorable , (clean) sweet heart.!
