What a Good Daddy

>> Wednesday, November 17, 2004

Tonight was bath night. Only the second "real" bath since Brenna's cord fell off. And Doug's first "real" bath experience. I don't know if it was because daddy was helping or if Brenna is just becoming more used to water, but she didn't fuss quite as much as she did on Monday evening when I bathed her myself. Daddy holds her up, mommy does the soaping and rinsing.

After bath mommy rubs on the lotion and daddy wraps her in a towel to comfort and dry her. I may be setting myself up... mommy = annoyance & frustration... daddy = comfort.

I try to make sure that Doug gets a chance to feed Brenna at least once a day, and it was the bedtime feeding today. He just came down, said she was out like a light, left the monitor with me and went to his office. Now, through the monitor I hear screaming. Ahhh, just when I was going to become jealous of Doug having such an easy time getting her to sleep. So, I am off to lull the princess to the land of Nod. Good night.

That's usually the way it goes. Don't let it get to you. In the end, if they want someone it will be MOMMY. She was a little angel at my house today. Took her bottle like a trooper, and didn't cry until MOMMY got back.

You might find, as Brenna gets older, that shaving cream makes bathtime a LOT more fun. Get a can of Barbasol shaving cream, which has a very light scent and rinses off easily, and you've got 'soap foam in a can'.

I've been using it on Aaron for years.
