Socks in the Bath

Ran a bath for Pigtails last night.  I checked in on her after 10 minutes to ensure her black toes were turning white again.  She was kicking back with her eyes closed relaxing, looked like a kiddo version of Calgon, take me away!  

Her socks were still on.

I asked, "Honey, why are your socks on in the bath?"

No response.  Her eyes were closed with ears plugged below the waterline.

"PIGTAILS, WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE SOCKS!?"

Slowly, her head emerged out of the water like a National Geographic hippo from a waterhole.

"Huh?"

"Socks, you have socks on, why?!"

"Oh, I didn't notice."

She casually peeled them off and ka-splumped them in a wet pile on the tile.  Then sunk back into the tub, closed her eyes and returned to Calgonland.

How can a kid not notice they have socks on in the bath?  What's next, snowpants in the shower?

  1. Throw some Tide in and call it good. I suppose the clothing staying on is better than the clothing always coming off...at inappropriate times...in front of company...and you find yourself saying, "where are your pants?" more often than you'd like to in a lifetime. {Boy, I feel sorry for that parent}
