Bathtime Fun

My kids are wild AND wacky &  they certainly keep me on my toes!!  They're at that age now {4 & 6} where they either get along fabulously... or not at all.

Case in point.  I used to LOVE bathtime.  It was a nice "wind down" from our day... there was nothing better than hanging out in a warm room listening to their giggles & splashes, am I right?  Not to mention the smell!  Oh, babies smelll sooooo good after a bath!

Well, that has changed a lot in the past year or two.

When they do take a bath together, there's splashing alright... AND lots of whining and screaming too.  Nobody thinks they're dirty and nobody thinks they need their hair washed.  The whole thing had become quite unpleasant, actually.

Until I remember something I saw on Pinterest a while back.

Glow sticks!!
Can I get an "Amen!?"

I'm totally serious!  Grab a few of these, turn off the lights and it's a whole new experience!  They LOVE it!  And it's such an inexpensive "treat" at the end of the day!  They're having fun, and I get to make sure they're clean... without any screaming or arguing.  It's a win-win!

So, that's just a tip from one mother to another!
I'd love to hear your tips for keeping bath time under control!

Pin It


  1. I saw this idea on Pinterest too. Glad your kiddos love it!

  2. It is true! We always have a dance party with them and then take them to the tub for playing:-)

  3. I have two nieces ages three and six and they fight like an ond married couple. They seriously make me want to space my kids out 15 years apart. Gotta love them though. They say some of the sweetest things to each other. <3 Love the glow stick idea, btw.

  4. I'm excited to do this too! Bathtime is a MESS in this house too... it seems everything gets accomplished in the bath but the bath! haha

  5. How fun! I tried this once and Mason cried for me to turn the light back on! Lol. I will try again when he's a little older :)


I ♥ hearing from you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a little message!
