... are often the best.
I bathe Declan and Tavish together every night (because it's more efficient), and they always sit in the same spots: Dex a little higher in the shallow end and Tav down in the deeper end by the drain.
Tavish regularly complains of a sore bum during and just after his bath, but never at any other time. It is a conumdrum that has stymied me, but to which I have given very little thought outside of the bathing arena. The solution presented itself one night last week, and he hasn't had a sore bum since.
The conversation went something a little like this:
Tav: Daddy, my bum is sore."
Si: "Again, Tav? Why is it always sore?"
Tav: "Don' know!"
He smiled after saying that, and wiggled his bum a little back and forth.
That's when the light bulb went off in my head.
Si: "Hey Tav, are you sitting on top of the drain plug, and rubbing your anus on the plug puller part?"
Si: "Well, if you stop doing that, you won't have a sore bum any more."
Tav: "Oh. OK!"
