Bath time

I have always loved doing the bath routine with Oscar, I loved watching his imagination at work when we were playing with the toys in the water, I loved how I had his full attention and he had mine and we had time to just talk without any distractions, and my favorite part was wrapping him up in a big fluffy towel and getting to smell that wonderful clean baby scent as I dried him off. Oscar is growing up, turning 7 years old soon, and today as he was taking a bath I realized that this REALLY could be the last bath where he lets me sit next to the tub waiting to help while carrying on a conversation between us. The baths are being replaced with showers more often now, and he is getting to the point where he doesn't require much help with washing his hair. I knew that I needed to document this time before it was gone...

 

And when we he was done I grabbed a towel fresh from the dryer, still warm. As I wrapped him up, I held on a little bit longer and made a wish for one more time.
