My mom always told me that giving my kids a bath in the evening will calm them down. A warm bath will relax them and help them sleep.
These are lies, by the way.
My kids equate bath time to a day at a water park. They get a burst of energy during a bath that flows over to our bedtime routine.
They choose bath time to practice cannonballs and see how effective the side of the tub is as a makeshift water slide. Once out of the bath, there is usually barely time to get a towel around them before they are running through the house dripping wet and literally bouncing off the furniture.
Does this sound like bath time at anyone else’s house or are our kids abnormal?
One thing that my kids love during a bath is using fizzy bath bombs, so I decided to make a batch just for them.
