T likes the water. And when I say he likes it, I mean he really, really likes it. In fact, I can't leave him for too long unsupervised while he sits on the toilet, or he'll play in the water. So it should come as no surprise that he enjoys his nighttime routine which still includes a bathing time. A few months ago, after a visit to my parents' home where they only have a shower, T started requesting a shower at night - and he's never gone back to a bath.
The reason I titled this post "Expressive language" is this: tonight, around 7:15pm (about 45 minutes early), he said spontaneously, "Shower time." And off he trotted to the bathroom.
I just love those clear moments!
