Spruce Up Bath Time! {Dollar Store Shaving Cream}

I consider myself very lucky. Both of my children love to take baths. I love having water babies, except for that they now fight over bath toys.... >:(  What's a mama to do to keep some peace in the house??

Distraction.  That is my favorite parenting tool. 

How to distract the three year old from his baby brother who steals all his bath toys?

Shaving Cream to the rescue!

TRex loves it. The giggles and laughter and splishing and splashing that follow the shaving cream bring me happiness. He slathers it all over himself - hair, arms, inbetween his toes.

I was using my travel size women's shaving cream. It turned from a gel into fluffyness as you work it, but it was pretty expensive leaving me to dislike putting it down the drain.

I was at the Dollar Tree this past weekend finishing up the stocking stuffers... I went a little bonkers... I spend $40... at a dollar store...
Anywho, while I was there, I picked up Barbasol Sensitive. Now he's got his own bottle of shaving cream. A budget friendly bottle, and one that smells pretty good. The boys come out of the bath smelling like sweet baby wash mixed with a little bit of a daddy-smell.  I love it.

And I love seeing my children playing happily together. Baby with the bath toys, and TRex with his shaving cream.
