Splish Splash

Why am I always shocked, come winter, by how early it gets dark?
Once our clocks "fall back" I'm ready to go to bed at 7:00.
Bedtime used to creep up on us as we played outdoors.
Now the evening seems endless.
I don't tend to take the kids out once it's dark.
This means that we're stuck in the house from 5:30 on.
No quick walks around the neighbourhood for us.
What to do to pass the time?
T'is the season for long, warm bedtime baths.
The kids could go for days in the summer without bathing.
We have to make a conscious effort to get them in the tub.
The winter is a different story.
They make a splashy mess of the bathroom bathe almost daily.
It's extra fun now that Cedric is sitting and splashing along with his big sis.
The only challenge is to keep their skin from drying out.
T'is also the season for moisturizer, and lots of it.
{I hear that.}
