Ever since Audrey was born, I've wanted to give her a bath by myself. When she was tiny, I helped with a bath at the kitchen sink. But bending over a bathtub? Uh....no. My back will simply not allow it.
And it's always been so awful that I can't even bathe my own child. Talk about feeling useless. David has been doing it, just like he does everything else.
But last weekend, I had the idea of putting Audrey in the shower with me. I figured she could play with her toys at the far end of the tub and I could bathe her without breaking my back. And it worked!
I'm so pumped about this. It's such a small thing, but such an important thing that most other mothers take for granted.
Right after her shower with Mommy. I think she enjoyed it.
