We have got a huge bathroom at our home in Dubai (compared to the bathrooms in India) making Aisha's bath time real fun. She can roll around, slither, crawl etc etc. I massage her with oil and then put her on a long plastic sheet for about 10 to 20 minutes, and she plays until ready for the bath, on the condition that I sing to her. For me, she is the only audience who enjoys my singing, and for her, Mamma is the best singer she have heard! So both of us enjoy the bath time. Aisha has got her bathroom toys, a hippo, a duck and a rattle. But she also wants the soap box, cup, oil-bottle and shampoo-bottle. I have to run around to keep her away from those.

After her oil massage, I wash hubby's hand-wash only clothes, and then take her to the bath tray. She enjoys her bath too, but for me, I have to take extra energy to keep her still. She becomes very much excited, trying to hold the cup, grab the soap and jump into the water filled basin. By the time I finish, I'll be bent down with back pain.
