It has been a busy weekend, full of outdoor play for the kiddos. To help them relax, recover and prepare for the week, I made them a special bath and bed time routine.
Buck (whom I've renamed BooBoo because of the amount of bumps and bruises he acquires in one day) had an especially productive day at the park with Mama Jean and Grandaddy; productive in the sense that he came how with even more "badges of honor". What can I say, he's all boy. So, to help soothe all the scrapes and rashes and help him relax, he had an oatmeal bath and wash.
It is very simple and easy. First I chopped up some oats in the blender. I took half of this and made a paste with milk. The remainder I put in his warm bath water. While he was in the tub, I used the oatmeal paste as a cleanser on a washcloth. After the bath, I rubbed my relaxing massage oil on his legs, arms and back. I did the same with Beauty.
