Bath in a Bucket

I saw it on TV and I just had to have one. The one I saw on The Today Show was the TummyTub, and this is the EuroSpa tub, but essentially the same thing only half the price. Who'd a thought that putting a baby in a bucket would make bath time so much more enjoyable. Bella really likes it, she totally relaxes in it and practically falls asleep. The old way of bathing her made her cry the whole time. She is a little small for it so I have to be careful with her.

The following pictures of Bella were taken after her Euro-Spa bath, doesn't she look totally relaxed and happy?


Then I decided to let Tony give it a try. He loves it too, he was so funny in it. I had a hard time getting him in it initially, but once he was in, he didn't want out. I think he sat in there for 45 minutes before I made him get out kicking and screaming.



The other bonus to this bath is it fits in my kitchen sink so it's easy on my back.

Francie and Natalie came over today and wanted to see the tub in action, so we put Tony in and got him on video saying some of his famous words.

P.S. Yes I do realize this is just a glorified bucket.

He's so cute, Lori! He's learned new words since I saw him last just a few days ago.

Happy Mother's Day!

We're running so much all day here that no one has any energy to blog and we all just crash at night. But, we're having lots of fun too. I'll fill you in later.

Oh, my, how funny!!!!! Bella looks SO "Oh, my, just had a phenomenal session at the spa"!!!! Your kids are both so adorable...

By the way, all the clothes you bought for your mom are BEAUTIFUL. Your mom looked so pretty in each new outfit. She sure appreciates your thoughtfulness. When we complimented her each day, she was so proud to then turn the compliment over to you and your kindness.

GOD she is cute!! She looks so much like you, and like Anthony! I love that picture of her in the blanket, could she look any happier? :)

If your kiddos continue to like it, I might have to get a "bucket" for my new one too. My boys HATED taking baths in the sink using the plastic bathtub. They didn't start to like baths until I put them in the real thing. The bucket looks silly, but you're right, Bella looks super relaxed!!
