N loves his baths, although he does moan beforehand and can never decide whether he wants a bath or shower.
He always used to hate getting his face underwater and still isn’t overly keen when swimming, although we might have reached a turning point there because without a float belt on over Easter in a different pool, he was swimming a few metres staying perfectly afloat because he was swimming with his face in the water.
But in his bath the other day, we’d put in quite a bit of bubble bath and I added a flannel for him to wash his pen striped face. Next thing I knew he was ducking his face in the water then flipped on his back and put his head back in the water too to totally cover himself in soap suds. Apart from towelling off his eyes, he didn’t care about keeping the rest of the suds on.
It’s amazing what adding something to bathtime can do. A simple flannel which he was totally intrigued by…after cleaning himself he then started cleaning the bath. I’m going to get him trained in cleaning that properly, because he told me he loved cleaning the bath. Strange child!
