The time has come for me to say goodbye to our beloved inflatable duck bath, as baby Quatro has now officially outgrown it.
May seem like a simple thing, but this crazy wacky quacky ducky has been with us from Tadpole's first days, and has seen all four of my adorable naked babies get clean, squeal, splash, and learn to love the water. It has marked milestones of graduating from a baby tub to being big enough to sit up in a bath of their own, to being too little to contain them and ready for the real deal bathtub.
I suspect every mom has certain items that become the backdrop of memories of our precious early days as mothers. Most of the items we used daily will no doubt fade in their significance over time, as our babies turn into toddlers and beyond.
But I think some will stand out. The duck bath is one of those, for me.
Bye bye ducky!
