Clara with Alabu Soap
Clara just turned two, she is Faith’s little sister, well she is actually her younger sister, she is bigger than Faith now and growing like a very healthy weed. One day after a lunch-time visit, Clara needed a bath; yes, she really enjoyed her lunch. I asked if she wanted a bath and she was excited and said yes. So I filled my kitchen sink with warm water, but when I went to  put her in the sink she was a little panicked and looked at me like maybe I had lost my mind. I explained to her that when her mommy was little she took a bath in the sink all the time. It’s a nice bath, it’s just a little bath.

Something clicked with her and she agreed to a bath in the sink. She had lots of fun and kept saying, “I’m taking a little bath”. Then she decided that she wanted her sister to take a little bath too. My daughter thought I was kidding when I said ok. I have a double sink and yes I filled that one up with warm water and Faith had a little bath too. There was lots of splashing and laughter and of course they each insisted on having their own bar of Alabu Goat Milk Soap!  Now every time I say “little” Clara wants a little bath!  Yes, I am one happy grammy.
