I am filled with insensible scorn at a fellow bloggers ideas for entertaining babies..since when did we need to find stuff to do with babies? You feed them, cuddle them, keep them clean and they do the rest. It’s quite miraculous. Among all the motor skills and picking up a language and learning not to snatch and bite, do they really need day spas? The babies that is.
We need day spas.
A day spa is a historically and medically sound part of the human condition. Throughout history the taking of thermal waters, internally and externally have been in and out of favour according to the governing bodies of the time. You turned up, stripped off, dunked and dipped and waded and sipped as long as you could stand it. You were massaged if you liked, and met like minded people along the way with which to shag, inspire or plot.
Filling your bath with bubbles and rubbing your babies feet is not a day spa.
Inviting your friend and her baby round for an afternoon of bathing is not my idea of entertainment, and I’m damn sure it aint no babies.
Let me know, am I just being a stick in the mud? Have I not lived until I’ve had a bathroom filled with the ringing of gurgling babies while they go through £20 worth of indulgent bathing product and 3 days worth of washing towels?
