So, this morning I decide to give the kids a bath before putting my daughter down for her morning nap. Bathtime starts out ok, but then the phone rings and it is my husband. At this time the noise level in the bathroom goes up about 10 times and I'm trying to listen to my husband and barely hear what he has to say. We get off the phone and my daughter is ready to get out, but still needs to be washed and the phone rings again. It is my girlfriend. I ask to call her back, but she just had a quick question. While I am answering her questions, the kids decide it would be fun to pull one of the bathmats, which is on the edge of the back because I was just about to clean up my daughter and the edge is always wet. So, into the bathtub goes the first bathmat. I pull it out while I wrap up my phone call with my friend. Phone call is done and my daughter is screaming, I'm guessing I pushed bathtime too close to nap time, so she has had it! I'm trying to wash her up and she won't sit down, which makes it hard to wash up her feet. She usually loves bathtime, especially when big brother is in there to play. I finish washing her up, rinse her off and get her dried off, lotioned up and dressed and into her crib. She's not happy, but it is much needed. Back to cleaning up my son and the floor is soaked!!! I realize the second bathmat has made it into the bathtub and then back onto the floor, soaking wet! I grab a third bathmat to help soak up the water and keep my feet from getting too wet. I wash him up and he wants to just play. Get him cleaned up, rinsed off, dried and down to my room to get him dressed. I forgot to grab him socks out of his room (which he shares with his sister), so he keeps saying, "I'll be quiet and get me socks". He is almost never quiet and would probably start talking to my daughter, so I sit him down to watch Sesame Street and I got get him socks. My daughter still isn't quite asleep, but thankfully wasn't bothered by me coming into the room. Now I get a few minutes of peace!!
