Following on from his particularly harrowing bath experience the other week, Mr 3 has taken to doing his best to get out of bathtime. Although, to be honest, I’m not entirely convinced that the ‘shoes in the bath’ incident and his reluctance to bathe are related. There was afterall the period when, as a baby, he would only bathe standing up, and then, as a toddler, the three or so months in which he would only shower.
He has his standard excuses and every now and then throws in a new one, just for good measure. A selection of his best (and the general response it is greeted with) include:
- I can’t see the bath. No, Mr 3, you can’t from the kitchen, but rest asssured it is still there.
- I can’t talk. You don’t need to talk to have a bath.
- The bath is broken. No, it works fine.
- I need to watch the cricket. (Music to Mr G’s ears and, had Mr 3 chosen his target just a little bit better, he may well have ended up sitting on the couch watching cricket instead. With Mr G that is.) There is no cricket on TV.
- I drank the bath. Sure you did.
- It’s too wet. It’s meant to be wet.
You can’t blame a boy for trying, although I do think his arguments would be somewhat more convincing if he wasn’t then so hard to get out of the bath.
