"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

Like Clockwork

Devin takes a shower with me on most days. I've found that unless he is down for a nap (and I despise waiting that long in the day to shower) he gets into a ton of trouble while I am bathing. So on most days he gets in there with me and plays on the tub floor while I shower myself. Then I turn the faucet on to let the water fall out of it while I step out and towel off. He LOVES playing in the fast water and filling buckets. Then after I am toweled and dressed, I get him out, towel, diaper, and dress him, and send him on his merry way.

Then he hears the roar of my hair dryer and like clockwork, he comes running back into the bathroom. He loves it when I blow the dryer in his face for a second, and he loves having his hair dried too. He laughs the whole time. And then while I finish getting ready, he pulls in a stool and starts to raid the drawers. I quit long ago trying to keep them organizied because he loves ot destroy them. And if it keeps him happy and entertained (and supervised) for twenty minutes while I get ready for the day, then I'm not complaining!

I actually wake up before Mackenzie so I can shower! But if I don't she's definitely in there too because she's way too destructive.
