As I’ve reported, per doctor’s orders Jensen is to have two 20 minute tepid water baths each day because of his Atopic Dermatitis. As far as the child is concerned, the whole ordeal amounts to torture that no little boy should endure.
Huck Finn being forced to take a bath.
Twice a day.
It’s not that it’s a painful experience, unless he’s had a particularly festive scratching episode just prior, but rather as Jensen proclaims IT’S SO BORING.
We go to great lengths to keep things interesting, as we allow him to take most any of his toys in the bath with him. But eventually he tires of it all. And I’m left with legions of rusted out hotwheels.
And then Fiddledaddy located this in the baby aisle of Target to the tune of about $4.
We quickly took off the top packaging which labels it a bath toy for BABIES. Because horror of all horrors. Calling him a baby is an offense that will conjure up his entire wrath.
Now the bath is a joyful experience.
But this is what I’m left with at the end of the 20 minutes.
Let it be known that a closed shower curtain masks a multitude of sins.
