Life with M, lately

This is what a 22 month old looks like when she doesn't want to get out of the bathtub. Clean hair. Clean body. Clean teeth. Face down in a very recently drained tub.
Me: Ready to get out?
M: Nope.
Me: (two minutes later) It's time to get out.
M: Nope
Me: (about 1.5 minutes later) I'm getting you out now. You've got lots of chill bumps. It's time for you to put baby to bed. (The doll she found in her closet)
M: Nope. (Tears of misery as I pluck her from the tub)

M: Mommy! Get me!

Time: 8:15 on a Saturday morning. Thank you, sweet girl, for sleeping late. And making me smile when I came to get you. This was such a sweet thing to see first thing in the morning.

LOL about the bath lover. I was afraid you were going to say you had to make her a bed in the tub.

And yeah, that is a precious morning face...especially since she slept late. Wil woke me at 6:25AM this morning. *yawn*

Exquisite. So sweet huddled down in the bath there looking at you out of the corner of her eye! Hope you're feelin' fine! Have you had any luck with DOR?? Its been working great guns here. I notice when I forget to do it, it makes a difference!

My Will would sleep in there if I'd let him! And some nights I am tempted.. :)

Aren't kids the best! They drive us crazy one minute and melt our hearts with tenderness the next minute. Nadia used to love the bath like that, but more recently she tells me when she's done. Yay for sleeping late! Hope you're feeling good!
