We only have one bathtub in our house and it’s in the master bathroom.
After Lucas has a bath, his favorite thing to do is rush out of the bathroom completely naked and dripping wet and jump and “wrestle in bed”, as he calls it with his dad.
The roughhousing turns into a game of struggling to get Lucas’ pajamas on.
It’s good physical fun for Lucas and great bonding time for both of them, so I usually stay away.
They twist and turn and roll all over the big king-sized bed, pillows are tossed on the floor and laughter can be heard throughout the house. It’s one of my favorite times of the day.
Having no fear or concept of how much his propelling onto his dad’s back may hurt, Todd recently tried to explain to Lucas that he is just a person; a body, made up of water, blood, tissue and bones. Overhearing this from the bathroom, I popped out and asked Lucas what he thought was in his body.
His reply without skipping a beat: “my heart”.
I may have cried a little.
