Lately I’ve been really enjoying bath time with Cam because, well, for one thing, he is contained in a 2×5 area and that’s a welcome relief from chasing him in and out of the house, but also because he expresses his creativity in interesting ways. He also talks a lot and I love hearing what he has to say.
For instance, last night we discussed at length all the things that fly. We named all the animals we could think of and he said “I think that’s all the creatures.” Then we named all the aircraft we could think of, and then we moved on to things that may or may not fly like kites, baseballs and monkeys. Cam firmly believes that if it doesn’t have wings, it doesn’t fly.
The bath time game of the moment is lining up his big blocks, filling them with faucet water and then serving everyone until they are no longer thirsty.
He’ll ask “which one do you want?” and I’ll pick a block, then he’ll pick his and say “cheers” before drinking it. This kid loves drinking faucet water. It’s “delicious!”
