Bath Time Be Damned

Never have I met a child that complains so quickly when her bum is submerged in water. My child eats anything, sleeps beautifully, and laughs like Santa - but bath time be damned! She will not be duped into the tub!

Why do you hate me, mom?
Why are you letting her do this to me, Grandma?
I thought you loved me?

We've tried toys, we've tried happy faces and songs, we've tried more water, less water, more soap, less soap, etc. The only thing that semi-works is to clean her as quickly as possible while singing Rogers and Hammerstein in a Julie Andrews voice.

She is thrilled when she escapes her liquid torture chamber to cuddle with daddy.
