There are so many magical moments that you look forward before you have kids but the reality is that there’s a somewhat boring, day-to-day routine that goes into raising little humans. Wake, wash, brush, clothe, feed, transport…repeat. I absolutely realize that it’s exactly these routines that give kids the structure and comfort they need to thrive but some days it can be just exhausting. I mean, really, I have to cook dinner again?! Here’s a Bathtime Routine Free Printable I made to help me remember to embrace the little moments that actually end up being the most important in the life of our children!
Our bathtime routine is probably pretty similar to your household: cleanse, nourish, style. For my boys, though, washing is always secondary in importance to top secret missions where superheroes and sharks work together to save the world so it’s essential we get in quickly with JOHNSON’S® shampoo & conditioner for thin/straight hair. After the world has been rescued and the bubbles float down the drain, a dollop of JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® leave-in conditioner seals the deal and makes their hair ready for a quick comb through. My kids have pretty short and straight hair so tangles aren’t too much of an issue but I know JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® detangling spray would do the job if need be.
The longer I’m a mother the more I realize that as amazing as the once-in-a-lifetime memories are for kids, it’s the day-to-day tasks that build my relationships with my children. In the everlasting quest of trying to balance motherhood and work, it’s easy to get swept into the “hurry up” mode but hopefully this little Bathtime Routine Free Printable can help me remember to slow down and enjoy the journey!
