Divide and Conquer

I have to admit, bathtime is one of my most dreaded activities. Especially with this ginormous belly. It used to be that everyone got baths on the same night, but I just can't handle that much "helping" at once.

So, the kids' bathtime is split up. The girls shower (which they still need help with getting all the soap OUT of their hair) one night and I laboriously slave over the tub with the boys on another night.

Miles generally hates all manner of bath/shower activities so it's a labor of patience. Call it a boy thing. Lucas, on the other hand, will come bookin' it at the mere sound of water running. His futile attempts at stripping his clothes from his person are laughable. He can't get naked fast enough. Perhaps his opinions will change once he realizes the purpose of baths, such as it did with Miles.

You make it look so easy to have 4.5 kids! If I keep watching you I may have the courage to have 5. (Yeah, probably not.) Love all your candid pictures. Lucas looks more and more like you.

I love the angles of your bath pics so that you can post them! :)
We do the same thing: we throw H and Z in the shower while E and A take the bath.

Benton is the same way. He knows that after dinner is bathtime and he gets mad on nights when we decide to forgo a bath.
