mommy moments

When Justin was just a baby (he still is, but he looks big for his age that I keep forgetting he’s still a baby) and even up to now, bathing my son is a task that I don’t delegate to his yaya (nanny), although in his first few months I would be asking his yaya for help.

When I went back to work after my maternity leave, I remember having to wake my son up early to give him his morning bath. He actually took his bath at 6am on weekdays.

I also never bothered buying my son a baby bath tub. Kids grow so fast, and I figured he would soon outgrow it, so it’s really just a waste of money. I made do with what’s in our bathroom, our ever reliable pail (“balde”) and wash basin (“batya”). Bath time isn’t complete without the water dipper, too (“tabo”).

This picture was taken a few days before Justin’s first birthday


And here’s a recent picture of Justin while taking a bath


Justin enjoys taking his bath, although lately, it would take a while to make him go to the bathroom because he doesn’t want his play interrupted. But once he immerses himself in the water, there’s no stopping him from turning the faucet on and off, pretending to wash clothes by constantly wringing his washcloth after dipping it into the water, or slathering the water dipper with soap.

  1. Hi tetcha, kids ko din, nku sayang talaga ung soap minsan. lalagyan nila ng soap ung mini towel na panghilod then they’ll scrub it sa body nila then pagkatapos babanlawan, gustong gusto nilang mabula ung water sa tabo! feeling naglalaba! 🙂
    bath tubs for babies are kinda waste of money nga, mdali kasi lumaki kids e, you’re right about that.
    ingat! 🙂

  2. We also have an oversized basin where my son takes his bath. It’s a good substitute for a bath tub. 🙂

  3. My son would love to play pretend too. He’ll get his wash cloth and just wipe all over the shower walls :)not to forget, he loves to make laba too ;D

  4. hi mommy tetcha,

    can’t help but smile each time i look at your baby’s bath time pix, ang cute especially yong 1st pic. :)hehehe

  5. It takes awhile to make Evan to take a bath too, sometimes I have to promise him that I’ll let him play with water after that. Not a good idea though, especially when we need to rush him to school after that, because once he’s inside the tub it’s even harder to bring him out of it.
    Have a good weekend mommy 🙂

    PS: I hope I didn’t make double comments here coz I failed to get confirmation on the first attempt. Sorry if I did.

  7. yeah, sometimes, toby wouldnt want to take a bath too especially when he is in the middle of his play time… 🙂 though when he is inside the bath room, its hard to get him to come out since he is enjoying already!

    i think almost all kids are alike in this area…

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
