House Music All Night Long: Glow Stick Bath

Mommy surprised us with a super fun bath last night (the tub markers we tried the night before last were a bit of a wash) -- a glow stick bath!  It's hard to get both of us in the same tub these days.  Kane is obsessed with mom and dad's shower and has taken it over with an elaborate pirate bath toy set up.  Mom loves that he'll stay in there for 45 minutes at a time, but is not a fan that he somehow rejiggers all four shower heads every time he is in there and she can never figure it out the next morning.  Silly mommy.  That's what you get for thinking you can take a shower.

Anywho, this was pretty simple, but unsuspected and fun.  We turned them into "jellyfish," "shark sticks," and, no surprise to anyone, they were eventually turned into weapons.  Mom ignored us as she did the dishes and Kane even got over the several times I bit him during our jousts.  But the 'ish hit the fan when I deigned to dump water over his head.  Repeatedly.  There is nothing that Kane hates worse than water getting on his face.  Well, maybe when I turn the T.V. off during his "shows."  But water over the head is right up there.  I soon found myself getting tucked into bed.  Word is that Kane took the glow sticks to bed with him.  I'm sure that worked out well.

(mom's old school iPhone didn't pull through very strongly on this one.  can apple please roll the new ones out already?!?)
