Bath Time, Calm Time, Not Here

Sarah loves bath time. It hasn't always been this way, as you can read from previous posts. However, she really enjoys it now and really gets into it. In fact, we decided to ditch the little inflatable tub and now she loves to have free reign of the entire tub.

Daniel and I were laughing the other day about how we were under the impression that bath time was supposed to be calming Sarah down from her day, but instead it gets her all wound up. In our house bath time is a raucous time. Sarah loves to splash and play with her toys. She giggles and talks and just really loves getting herself, and me, soaking wet.

So, I have excepted that bath time in our house in not the calming down part of Sarah's nighttime ritual. We love her energy and strong interest in bathtime and continue to encourage her play. Instead, we brush her hair and then read several books in her room to help wind her down from her active day.

Tonight, Sarah was ready for bed but decided instead of falling to sleep right away she would read to her stuffed animal friends, and Froggy, of couse. Sarah then put herself to sleep.

Night night. Sleep tight.
