Bathtime Doings

Sometimes, during bathtime, I take pictures.  Because I love their sweet, sturdy little selves.
Sometimes, during bathtime, I sing songs.  Because there are requests, and who am I to deny such requests?
Sometimes, during bathtime, I wash my face and brush my teeth.  Because their simultaneous confinement leaves me free of those who ordinarily like to crawl up my pant leg during such activities.
Sometimes, during bathtime, I wipe down the counters and the toilet with a Lysol wipe.  Because I only just then paused long enough to realize how gross they looked.
Sometimes, during bathtime, I simply sit and stare at wispy curls and glossy lashes. Because that's my reward, as their mother.
 What do you do during bathtime?

I do the exact same things! Wash my face, brush my teeth, wipe down the counters, and sometimes just sit there and smile. I LOVE bath time!

By the end of the bath, everything is clean and shiny, including your heart! Love, Mama

I used to have to put the head, that had just been removed by one big brother, to the delight of one little sister, back on the Barbie a milion bizillion times! I can still heard the laughing as they so enjoyed each other.

We sing songs, I notice how utterly disgusting our bathroom is and am horrified, I brush my teeth and put on makeup. Basically the same thing. Sometimes I throw in a load of laundry, as our washer/dryer is right in front of the bathroom door.
