Face your fears?
The first picture is a cute little fridge magnet found on our recent foray into Frederick MD. Cole was collapsed on the store floor like an island in the shopping store, so I placed the magnet on his inert side.
NO ONE around here enjoys bath time but Cole fears it. Until this year, age 12, he tried to get in my lap when DH said, it's time... he knew what time it was. And when mommy starts with that look in her eye, acting like Edward Scissorhands, well, it's almost too much!
It's a big fat relief when he's done for a month. He gets to bask in all the ooohs and aaaaahs of people who say how handsome he is.
We are relived the smell is gone. A mix of that boy smell when he's had a month of frolic in the yard and food caught in a moustache.
He is a nervous eater, so doesn't want a treat for getting in the tub. After the grooming is over though...
Do you face your fears? I have a plenty of them, and he's a reminder to try to face them down!
