Sometimes when it's too cold to go outside and the boredom sets in,
I like to fix a fancy bath for the girls.
We have a room heater,
bubbles, body wash, special washcloths and towels,
and lotion for afterwards.
These baths are not about getting a good scrub,
getting clean is a fringe benefit.
These morning baths,
while the winter sun shines full in the window,
are about water play,
on a cozy day.
After the towels and lotion,
the hair brushing and dressing,
we snuggle on the sofa for reading,
and I inhale the scent of my bubbly clean girls
and I know I have a slice of heaven.
