bath-time or a space management lesson?

The Bittle visit – Boys vs. Girls Highlight #3

Bath-time was a real experience with 4 children under the age of 2.75. In my mind, I imagined taking all their pictures as they angelically looked at me while hanging over the tub. Later in life, we would look back at those pictures and smile about how adorable our children were.

I am not sure where I got that idea, but it must have been when I was drinking. Seriously, four kids in the bath at the same time? Ridiculous.

There was no room for the water since it’s not an over-sized tub. Kate dissolved in tears. Justin started splashing. Clara & Andrew just played with the 100 plastic letters that were floating everywhere. It was a sight to behold. There were bare butts everywhere.

Amazingly enough, no one noticed the penis’s or lack of penis’s. I was fully expecting that to be the topic of conversation.

The next night was a bit calmer & I was able to get a little video time (minus Justin who was sick and not allowed to spread his snot in the water with the others). Andrew’s electronic toothbrush seemed to have them all enamoured. Clara was 2 inches from Andrew’s face with her mouth wide open – with the indication that he should start brushing her teeth too. Joel kept trying to remove her, but it was almost as impossible as reversing gravity.
