What happens when you yell "BATHTIME"

Don't your kids leave their underwear on the living room floor, too?

I like giving baths to little newborn babies that are so soft and sweet. Then they grow into bigger, messier, splashier kids. I really don't like bathtime. Even though it is a regular routine usually with me saying 50 times "sit down" and "keep the water in the tub" it always ends up with me wet and someone screaming about soap in their eyes.

The first house we owned had the ugliest bathroom ever. I used to think who ever put it in bought whatever was on sale at the hardware store every week. Nothing matched. It was an awful place to try and take a bath to relax.

We have lived in many houses since then and I think this one has my favorite bathrooms. The man we bought it from was redoing it for his parents who in the end decided not to move. There are many little details I think he wouldn't have bothered with had he known this crazy bunch was moving in. This bathtub is the older kids', I really should have turned the camera around so you could see the oodles of teenage stuff that, you know, they need to be beautiful.

Maybe I will find some courage and share the rooms in our house. I love reading blogs that do this.

I love seeing your home and this photo is perfect! You should have it enlarged and framed! Share some more! I am out of pocket right now so I am reading several posts at once. Wish I was close by to get a jar of yummies for my pantry! ENJOY!

Hello! I just found your blog from someone who stopped by MY blog from yours--so thank you for that!!! And I love yours--you're much better at the household stuff than I am, and you make it look so easy. And we, too, are huge fans of Robert McCloskey--One Morning In Maine is our absolute favorite. The two girls in the book could be photos of my girls when they were that age--same age difference, same personalities. It's amazing, and that book is beloved in our home...I'll be back to visit more!
