I RECEIVED THESE PRODUCTS AT NO COST TO FACILITATE MY REVIEW. HOWEVER, ALL THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS EXPRESSED ARE COMPLETELY MY OWN
For my 18 month old daughter, there is no other source of joy quite like bath time. True to her toddler nature, she is a little busy body who wants more than anything to be independent. She wants to feed herself, bathe herself, play with her toys by herself, and the list goes on! When it comes to bath time, she LOVES to splash around and learn through playing, but the actual act of bathing isn’t particularly her cup of tea. She’d much rather me just sit at a distance and watch her play with her toys. Sigh. It’s like she’s an 18 month old going on 18 year old teenager!
And I try to somewhat honor those wishes by sitting on the bathroom floor and giving her some quality play time in the tub. I’m telling you, it’s really an amazing thing watching the little gears in a toddler’s head start to turn as they play and figure things out for themselves. As much as I want to play with her, I’ve learned that in this season of her life, there will be times where it’s best for her to play on her own so she can develop a sense of imagination and how things work through examination. So when it comes to bath time toys, I try to make sure she has a variety of things that really encourage imaginative play and pique her curiosity.
