Rub a Dub Dub. Two Kids in the Tub.

As it turns out, putting your kids in the tub is a great way to get some work done. Right now, I'm taking a break from writing the nursery articles in the upcoming edition of Premier Baby and Child to blog, and my two little ones are splashing together in the tub. Baby B is in his little stability seat, and he's splashing and kicking in the water. He's finally managed to grab a rubber duck and he's pretty proud of himself. WG is playing with a family of ducks and singing to them. Her two ducks are currently embraced in a pretty heavy lip-lock. As usual, one of our Disney movies is being re-enacted.

Sometimes, I wish I wasn't working through moments like this. That I could take more time to just sit and watch them. Because they sure are funny. But I'm grateful for the little moments just sitting beside them. That I get to sit cross-legged on the floor with my laptop, doing something that I really love, without missing the joy of a mid-morning weekday bath.

We'll see how I feel later today, though. Somehow, I need to fit in two interviews, five articles, a meeting, and my husband's reception from work. Did I mention that the WG is home (it's a teacher work day) and Baby B has an unexplained fever? Right now, there's wash humming away in the laundry room, the kids are happy, the words are flowing for me and I feel very much in control. We'll see what a few hours will bring....

They are really getting big! Enjoy them while they are little, they grow up to have opinions, and lots of them!
