Bath time is a constant struggle with Turner.
I thought we had the problem solved. When he was still a newborn, Turner hated baths. He would scream bloody murder. But as he got older, he warmed up to the idea. We go thin some bath toys, and all was right with the world. Or so we thought.
Then the accident happened. OK, I am just being dramatic. Nothing happened. We got Turner an outside pool and put him in it one day and he screamed as if we had put him in a pot of grease. The water was not even cold. We actually warmed up water for the pool for him.
Now, every bath time is once again a fight. He screams and kicks when he knows that is where he is headed. Once in the tub, he REFUSES to sit down and just reaches for me or Andrew to pick him up and rescue the poor child from his inevitable demise.
Last night I thought we had progress. I put on my bathing suit and got in the bath tup with him. I tried to make it fun. We added some new toys that he got for his birthday and I played for him. That only worked long enough for Turner to realize that he was in fact in the bath tub and screamed until his daddy came to his aide.
Later this month we are going to Florida for a week. We want to take Turner to the water park and enjoy the lazy river and the wave pool and the kids fun stuff, but not with that attitude! Turner has been in a pool before, and he loved it. But that was before this resurfaced fear of water and the tub appeared.
Any suggestions? Advice? Comments? We are lost and want to make bath time, fun time for our little prince!
