Remember back in November when I posted about Sissy and her mounting fears. The most frustrating was the bathtub...
We tried all of the suggestions and then some other things we just thought up. Finally, we remembered a bucket of foam bathtub blocks that we had acquired at some point when Buddy was a tot. They're really neat - when they're wet, they stick to bathtub surfaces and come in assorted shapes - like circles, squares, rectangles, arches... And, they also float so a variety of things can be made from them.
A few of the blocks had teeth marks in them and the bucket was in bad shape. We had stored it in our "workshop" room of the house. The workshop room is where the Evil Twin used to smoke (I'll have more on that later). So, the bucket is dingy and gross.
We brought those foam blocks up anyway and really hyped them to Sissy. She was still timid, but didn't scream as much as normal and she did play with the blocks.
Then, we found two little plastic frogs. I don't even know where they came from, but she loved them. So, we named them Hopper and Bopper and she can't wait to get back to the tub to play with the blocks and frogs.
I decided to look for a new set of blocks to replace the half bitten ones that are a decade old, but I looked at the Evil Empire (the mart of Wal), and could only find a pack of foam letters and numbers. We're having fun with those now...I'll keep looking around for blocks.
Of course, the Evil Twin uses the letters to make dirty words or phrases. Last night, it was "Foxy Ass".
I guess it's a good thing Sissy can't read yet. LOL.
