A Good Soaking Bath

Remember when taking a bath was an ADVENTURE?  You may have been coaxed into the tub, but it was a genuine battle to get you out.  Oh the fun of sloshing and swimming, of pretending to be a pirate or a mermaid!

If only we adults could submerge our bodies into pools of deep frothy water filled with floating toys, wouldn't we take a bath every day?

I'm a shower girl.  I'm alllll about a steamy hot shower and singing at the top of my lungs.  If I could fully lay down in a bathtub without bashing my head or tangling my toes on the nozzle, I might still be a tub girl.  I'm not graceful enough to read in the tub and I would surely burn myself if I had candles (don't ask, I really am that talented).


  1. There's something about sitting in a tub of water, that's being polluted with your own filth, and getting colder by the minute, that makes it really unattractive to me.

    So yes, I'm also all about the hot, steamy, relaxing showers.

  2. shhhh... that's what the bubbles are for, to hide the filth!

  3. I do both; enjoy a hot shower one day and then luxuriate in a bubble bath the next. And my 9-yr-old would spend 2 hours in the bath if I let her!
