WFMW- Kids' Bathtime

Hey y'all! This is my first 'Works for me Wednesday" post. Thanks for having me in!

When my kids were little I was paranoid about bath time. One of us was always within reach of the boys-like all parents should be. However, as the boys got a little older and just being in the room would work, I got bored. Really! How many nights can you play bubbles? Once they were washed, I was done. But, of course, they were not. My boys LOVED to play in their bath. This is where the tips come in...

It really worked for me to:

  • clean out the cabinets and drawers- refold towels, throw away old whatever that was shoved way behind everything else.
  • pluck my eyebrows.
  • sort laundry.
  • give myself a mini-facial.
  • scrub the toilet or shower.
What else can you come up with?

Head on over to Rocks in my Dryer and find solutions to your questions- or maybe some answers to questions you didn't even know you had!

*PLEASE REMEMBER! These tips worked when my kids were older, I never left the bathroom, and I was always able to see them and monitor their play and safety. Just sayin'.

Lol! This was my WFMW post last week and worth repeating. I find it is a perfect time to clean the bathroom (everything except for the tub and floor) or do my hair and makeup. I bathe my dd in the morning so it is a great time to get ready without Miss Grabby Hands getting into everything.

I sit on the toilet and drink wine. :0)

Good tip. When my boy is a little older, this seems like a good time to clean the bathroom.

Niki said...

Love doing that, without cleaning the bath while they soak in the tub...well it may never get done. GReat tip

Great tips! I love to read. If my daughter is chatty, I just bring in a magazine instead of a book. That way the articles are short.

I definitely clean.. the bathroom.. ect.. My son has the most stalling tactics when it comes to getting out of the tub!!

Lauren said...

Totally! I love to clean the bathroom as long as we're in there.

A mom two boys...not a bad idea!

You are so productive! I get bored too-sitting on the toilet drinking wine while reading a book is more my style!!

I sit on the toilet and read magazines or check out things on the internet. But I really should clean up in there while the older one plays, I suppose.
