What is it like to have 3 kids in the house?
Erm. Chaotic? That’s by the way, an understatement. Apart from chaotic, the other word that comes to my mind is – Repetition. Yes, repeat after me, Repetition. Many of the daily activities (and challenges) at home are repeated a 3 times. We’d repeat the same drill for most routines, like getting the kids into bed, waking everyone out of bed (though most of the time, I prefer to keep them in for a longer time), and getting the kids to bathe.
Yes, bath time in this house is pretty much a bitter-sweet experience (most of the time).
Why so? Cos it takes what seems like a ‘forever’ to get them into the bathroom (sometimes not without a fight), yet it takes another ‘forever’ to get them out of it. Now, imagine repeating this drill 3 times!*argh*
Kids! I wonder why are they programmed this way.
When the kids were little-er, bath time was a lot easier. Little babies don’t put up very good fights – they can’t run out of the bath tub, play with toilet bowl (Chubby!!!), spray water at you or scream into your ears when soap gets into their eyes (even when the label on the shampoo bottle says “NO TEARS”!) – everything they do now.
Despite the challenges, we still pretty much enjoy bath time, after all, it’s a form of water play, right?
Over the years and with every child, we bought toys, and inflatable pool, tubs, bathrobes and flavourful washes. It’s alot of fun for me shopping for a good bath, sometimes I need to be reminded that I am not shopping for myself.
I came home one day and saw this lovely pot of flower on my study desk and went “Ooh lala!”. So pretty right? Wait a minute, what’s up with the hubs? He hasn’t got me flowers for 3 years! (erham!) The last time I smelled flowers was when I gave birth to this boy…
|Happy Chubby in his happy Pooh bathrobe. It’s my favourite!. So cute right? I always pull his “ears” when he wears it.|
Upon closer examination, well, not from the hubs. Not surprising -.-.
|It makes a perfect mini fountain for Chubby and he loves it!|
|It’s almost the size of the younger kids’s head so washing shampoo off their hair is a bliss with this handshower.|
|Thanks to the gentle “soft raindrop” flow, the water pressure is well controlled and not too harsh for the kids.|
I was told that the handshower comes in various colours! I am glad they gave me a pink one
Thank you GROHE, for sending us such a lovely gift!
