Elizabeth has suddenly decided that she HATES bath time.  We're not quite sure why.  Our only thought is that it's something to do with having had too many coldish ones in the middle of the night during Pukefest. 

 

Since she still needs to have a bath every few days, we've been trying a number of different strategies in order to reduce and hopefully eliminate the screaming-wet-naked-monkey-desperately-trying-to-get-out-of-the-tub impressions.

 

Bubble bath "like Auntie Janice" was pretty successful, but it's not recommended too often at this age as too often can result in an itchy bum. Yes, we learned this the hard way.

 

So today we tried bath paints.  Hey presto!  No screaming!

I just let Ali have her first bubble bath in years the other day - so far, no complaints! They used to irritate the mess outta her.

And those bath paints look fun...but the antithesis of clean!! :)

Yeah, I was suspicious about the paints helping "clean", but lots of moms commented that the bonus was getting your child to help clean the tub. It looks like a good way to stain fingers and grout but it all washed out easily leaving both child and tub cleaner than when we started!

I did NOT let her experiment on the grout though. I'll let someone else try that and report back...

Just as well that Bath Paints hadn't been invented 30 years ago. I don't know if I could have coped with the concept... ;)

I am so glad that you linked this post to my site a few days before we got slammed with whooping cough because OH MAN have we been using every bath trick up our sleeves over the past week.

Bath paints = HUGE hit!
