Bath Time

After dinner, our routine is pretty simple. Alice, normally covered in a rather large portion of her dinner from head to toe, is swept straight upstairs for a bath. Normally Helen monkeys around until I'm done with Alice, who until very recently had little patience for the tub and wanted out instantly. Helen would then get her turn, demanding a lot more water and lingering with her bath toys for sometimes a good 20 minutes or more.

Helen and Alice have been taking their baths together for a month or so now - Helen will eagerly hop in about 6 inches of water and splash around with her sister, who has been enjoying the toys and lingering herself lately. Tonight I got some great pictures of the two of them playing.

There is some pretty valuable real estate at the faucet end of the tub.  If my sister is looking at these pictures, it might bring back memories of our own childhood baths to see the struggle for prime position.  Alice was constantly crawling over her sister to get to that faucet.  She really enjoys standing up, and pulling up the knob that turns on the shower.

Later, they got into a splashing contest.  The loser was the bathroom floor.
