Roo's sign is Pieces, which is a water sign.
From day one, Roo has LOVED her baths. She could (and did) spend hours splashing in the sink and later on, the tub. Give that child a few toys and some bubbles and she was happy.
Those days have disappeared.
As soon as I mention the word bath, she freaks out. She will literally run away from me if she can.
She just starts screaming, complete with crazy tears as soon as her tiny feet hit the bathroom tile.
Bath time has been reduced to the world's quickest shower where I quickly slather her body with soap, wash her hair and swoop her out of there as fast as I can.
Oh, the tears and the screams I endear in that three minute shower.
You would think someone shot her.
I tried a tub full of toys and finger paints last night with hopes of enticing her.... nope.
What has happened? It's not like she doesn't like water because she'll play in her little plastic pool everyday, and quite happily too.
Where did my bath baby go? I mean, I can't forgo giving my child a bath, she plays outside all day and gets very dirty. Besides, could you imagine the smell if I didn't?
Egh, any suggestions?
