I'm sure you've heard of a family bed before. And while we find ourselves in that situation more often than not; the big sharing time in our house is bathtime! We have a family bath. With 4 kids, it's the fastest and most efficiant way to get everyone clean. The oldest has graduated out of family bathtime, but the other babies LOVE it.
We have a HUGE garden tub. I usually get a nightly soak in the tub and then Archie starts bringing me babies. We rotate them in and out to be lotioned up and jammied up. On really fun nights we end up with a traffic jam of 2-3 kids in the tub with me at the same time. I love it.
Last night was one of those nights. Gavin, Amelia and Tucker were all in there with me. Gavin and I were judging whether or not we were pruney enough to get out.
You know when you have those moments when you realize how truly blessed you are? When God opens it up to you right straight to your heart? That was me, last night. A tub full of happy, splashing, squealing babies. We ARE truly blessed.
The water grew cold, we were all adequately pruned and Gavin had decided that Tucker had enough baby prunes so we got out. My hope is that those happy memories will stay with the kids for a lifetime. I know that they'll stay with me.
