Bubbles

"Mama," my seven-year-old son said. "Can  I have a bubble bath?"

"Sure," I said.  I didn't see any harm in that.

A little while later my son came out of the bathroom with a big grin on his face.

"Why are you smiling?" I asked.

"Oh nothing," he said.  "I just had a nice bubble bath."

Hmmm.

My daughter went into the bathroom immediately after my son.  Two seconds later:  "Mom!!!"

Uh oh.

"There are bubbles all over the place in here, and there are no more bubbles in the bottle!"

"Bubba," I said.  "Did you dump the entire bottle into the bath water?"

He grinned sheepishly.  "Yeah."

All I could do is shake my head at that one.  I bet it was quite a bubble bath!

  1. Luckily my kids hated bubbles until just recently. Now my little one likes to get in my jacuzzi tub and turn on the jets and let the bubbles fill up over his head. It takes until morning for the bubbles to go away, but I figure he's getting doubly clean with all that soap!

    1. I bet the jacuzzi makes lots of bubbles! At least it's better than dirt.

  5. I remember dumping in a whole bottle as a kid. I adored bubbles. I wonder if I have any bubble bath liquid on hand.
