Bubble Bathing with Natasha
I love to bathe. I rarely ever have a shower. There’s something about starting your day completely warm. There are some days when I’ve had two baths if I need a relaxer at the end of the day.
My love for bathing began at a very young age. Very early on and since my brother and I are only 13 months apart we used to get bathed together. However, the real fun began when my parents built a house with our first Jacuzzi. Sure we still had our regular baths. But when you are only five or six you can fit many bodies into that that very large bath tub, and a lot of bubbles.
Whenever my cousin or a friend or two would come over, we’d jump into our swim suits, run the water, throw in some bubbles and start the jets. I remember spending hours in there. You know it’s a good bath when you have to add more hot water, more bubbles and get more toys. We used to destroy that bathroom with water and bubbles, however, it must’ve occupied us for long enough that my parents thought it was worth it.
Speed ahead 20 years…and I truly never thought I’d be able to say that… 20ish years ago was the last time I had a bubble bath.
And ode to a bubble bath
I was excited to see bubble baths win as I saw this as an opportunity to put my annual 1 litre of bubble bath from Santa to use.
I brought along a friend.
I was also excited to use the air jets in the tub at my house. When I was a kid we used the Jacuzzi that just used the water jets. It worked great. But not as great as the air jets. Here’s the bubbles with just the tap making the bubbles.
And here’s the bubbles with the air jets.
Now for some fun with bubbles.
Three things I learned from today (since Robyn likes lists).
- Bubble baths are just as fun as I remember them. But not relaxing.
- Air jet tubs require less bubble bath than a regular Jacuzzi or what you’d put under the tap.
- Little dogs are braver than big dogs.
And last but not least…An invitation to Robyn to try out the freshly cleaned tub at my place for ultimate bubble fun.
