I had tried everything in the book: "Ok guys in 10 minutes it is going to be bath time...Ok which one do you want a bath or go to bed?... Ok do you want a bath or a shower?... Ok come on lets take a bubble bath!"
Nothing had worked to get them in to the tub. Especially Kaio hates baths.
They pretty much ignored me and continued playing rambunctious in their room. Kaio took four containers of sample size wall paint, stacked them, and carried them on a tray to me: a birthday cake. They sang me happy birthday, which I have to say was the dearest, cutest of the cute. Nene, 2, fumbled through the words, and Kaio, 4, kept the tune. I blew out the pretend birthday cake feeling very appreciated. Not my birthday by the way.
Time for a Party! How about a pool party? Do you guys want a pool party?
Let's get our bathing suits on and go swimming in the pool!
So they put on their bathing suits and hopped in the bath.
Finally! Success! They got into the bath without a fight.
