Before the Chaos

Last week, prior to the Ear Infection Infestation that hit our Gang, we tried something new:


Rub-a-dub-dub...both my girls in one tub!

For the past 18 months, I've been bathing each triplet individually.  It's so time-consuming (obviously), but I just can't figure out the logistics of bathing 3 wigglers.  As a matter of fact, we've only recently moved from the kitchen sink to the bathtub (maybe within the last month or so).  Way back when, Lindsay and I attempted to bathe all three babies together.  It didn't go so well

Generally speaking, the boys enjoy their baths more than Ava.  She tends to scream cry for no less than 5 minutes before she realizes that she hasn't been placed in a vat of acid and the tub is actually enjoyable.  I figured adding Zoe to the mix might distract Ava enough to avoid the tears all together.  It worked (for the most part).  She did grab on to me for dear life as I lowered her into the tub, but she quickly relaxed when she saw Zoe.

My next challenge: Bathing the boys together!

I will just be happy to start using the bathtub! I hate the sink! Very cute that she grabs onto you before you put her in!

Super sweet :) We bathe all the girls together - it works okay but the tub is never big enough!!

I've never heard of Brian Reagan but I am checking him out on YouTube cause anyone who disses kids shows is a friend of mine :) It's just funny. I should correct myself though and say that Yo Gabba Gabba is creepier...

Bathing 3/time is definitely much more efficient....hope it works out for you :)
