We all want to have fun with our kids...why not fit snuggles, laughs, and smiles into things you are already doing during the day? Valerie (profile below) has a sweet, fun way to make the mundane, memorable!
When I was little, my mom would say this little poem while she helped me dry off after my bath. I loved it then, and I still love it today. I know she read it in a book at some point, but I have no idea which one, so I am unable to give credit. Just know that I'm not claiming to have written it! ;) I've used it with each one of my kiddos and they laugh every time! I thought I'd pass it along. It's a simple way to make a fun memory with your little toddlers.
After My Bath*
After my bath, I try, try, try,
To wipe myself till I'm dry, dry, dry.
Hands to wipe, fingers and toes,
Two wet legs and a shiny nose!
Just think how much less time I'd take,
If I were a dog and could shake, shake, shake!
* Add motions for even more fun!
