Sparky, just before getting his nightly bath…
The little guy entertained himself next to the tub just before he and Kate had their evening baths.
We normally tag-team this task: Nicki typically bathes the boy, I get Kate ready for bed.
But tonight I got to take care of Sparky while Nicki was doing other things around the house, and then I took care of Kate. Usually bath time gets both of them wound-down from the day. The nightly ritual. Usually it works.
But for some reason Kate just got wound up more. Having her help with his getting ready rituals (she loves to comb his hair) seemed to help.
About fifteen more minutes and they were both in bed and Mom could have her glass of chardonnay.
