The Ordinary Moments 1/52 – Bath time

I have decided to jump aboard with this years linky from “Mummy, Daddy, Me”… to post weekly throughout the year about the ordinary moments that make life what it is for our family! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading hers from 2014 and look forward to this being a springboard in helping me find joy in the smaller things this year to help me live “a hearty life” I hope to focus on the simple things that make us happy so as I look back on my 1st official year minus Poppy and beyond we will remember the good times and that we had reason to smile.

We start the year in the bath – one of the favourite places in our home for both E and M. They would both be happy to play in the bath at any time of day – be it together, with cousins (an added bonus) or on their own. Without a doubt baths are where its at! Our bath isn’t anything special, stained with nail varnish (thanks Megs for decorating), cluttered with half used shower stuff and the occasional black spots in the grout (you know the ones – at least I hope you do or this is awkward)!

They were overjoyed that “Santa” had brought them bubble bath and beg several times a day to take a bath and splash about. I absolutely love the joy I hear from them both from something that is just a natural part of daily routine, they play well together, chat, laugh out loud and is sometimes the only answer when I am tired and life is at its limits.

    Ah I love their bubble beards- so cute, and you are right you can’t beat a bath. My girls love them (and so do I but for different reasons!) 😉 We just recently upgraded all our toys to new ones as they do get a bit grimy don’t they? We had our bathroom done this year after years of living with the most gross bathroom you could imagine, so I am loving having a sparkly one for a while, but I know your dark grout plight well! 😉 It’s lovely to find your blog, I haven’t visited before, and I will look forward to reading the rest of your ordinary moments during the year. xx
