We don't have a lot of routines around here, but the ones we do have we're pretty good at keeping. The nightly bath ritual is one of those staples. By 7ish chiquita is a crank monster. It's at that time that she has had enough of the day and wants, or needs, to sleep. Fortunately for us, no matter how whiny she is, it all subsides as soon as we undress her for her nightly bath.
When her clothes come off the fussy baby vanishes and she is all smiles. Chick-a-dee loves, loves, LOVES the tub. Bath time is definitely a favorite for all of us! :)
