Awful Bath Chaos…
or… Dreadful Eczema Ferment… Great Horrible Incident….Jerking Kids Lugs…. Most Noisome Ointment….Pretty Queer Rascal… Soap Terribly Unpleasant…. Vile Water Xperience (;~))… Yep Zombie…. okay… i am no Sarah – i admit defeat….i only got the last bit with help! :~D
Think fuming face emoticon
IF you have a child with utterly vile eczema, who has recently had a certain amount of carefully guarded respite from said disgusting itchy torment.. .there are certain things that are a definite no no…. and ONE of them… ONE of them… is that if you go upstairs and put all three children in the bath, you remove the bar of soap from the reach of said children so that no one decides to turn the water into soap soup…..
AND IF…. rage threatens to seep out of fixed grin veneer…. IF you should happen to let this occur, you are expected to revoke all daddy-can-sleep-through-anything behaviour and get up at least 4 of the 5 times said child wakes hysterical with itchy dry skin and DO something about it… rather than sleeping through it while mummy gets up to rub skin and simultaneously change TWO wet beds (7 times i got up last night – SEVEN!!!!!!!!)
And if all this occurs (after 18 months of living with an eczema’y child) the sentence “Is soap bad then????” does somewhat suggest you haven’t been paying attention…
Strop… fume….. eyeballs rolling….
(Actually – it really wasn’t his fault so much – i just wanted an angle for the story!)
