While bathing children.
Introducing (drum roll) .... the bath apron.
When our triplets were born, my incredibly talented sister-in-law, Kathy, made Charlie and I each our own bath apron.
She took a single bath towel, sewed on a neck strap and waist strap (which attaches with velcro), added a little embroidery on the front(s) and whamo ... a bath towel that you wear, like an apron.
How brilliant is that??!
The beauty of this creation is that not only does it keep YOU dry when you are bathing children that love to splash all around while IN the tub ... it's a great way to scoop them up and quickly dry them off when they are getting OUT of the tub.
Especially when you are bathing them on your own.
Rather than holding a towel in my teeth (or under my chin), I can just scoop up the baby ... towel them off ... and in their jammies they go. Meanwhile, I stay dry the WHOLE ENTIRE time. Yay!
If you are not crafty enough to make a bath apron yourself ... and you do not have a sister-in-law as talented as our Kathy to make a bath apron for you ... then you are out of luck.
But ... not for long.
Because ... you can also purchase these wonderful creations on-line. (Then again, what can't you purchase on-line?)
(Edited on 3/2/08: Even if you don't have a sister-in-law named Kathy that is extremely talented, you can still get a bath apron made by MY sister-in-law named Kathy who is extremely talented. Because, she is now selling her bath aprons on Etsy!)
