Rub-a-Dub-Dub, Jorja Mae's in the Tub!

I actually stole this idea from one of the blogs I stalk because I've learned from the blogging world that I am SO not a creative mom AT ALL! It has become apparent to me that if you have ever been an elementary school teacher you are the best mom ever!! And, since all I've ever done is hang out with teenagers and sold tickets - I have to try to become the best mom ever by stealing ideas from others! HA! :)

Jorja absolutely L-O-V-E-S bath time - the second she hears the water start running she immediately starts yelling "baf" over and over and will laugh and get SO excited!! So when I heard this idea I couldn't pass it up as I knew Jorja would love it! We bought some really cool Color Bath Dots from Crayola and some Alphabet letters and bath toys and had a great time learning our colors. I only put toys in the bath that matched the color of the water and we spent the whole bath time talking about & learning whatever color Jorja was splashing around in. We are still working on Jorja totally identifying the right color as she says the right name (at this point, it seems everything is either red or blue) but she's getting there. At this point, the only one she's really consistent with in identifying correctly is "Boo" (Blue). When asked to repeat she will say "red", "gree", "lello", "pupl" & "boo" however, orange is still no where to be heard! :) I love watching my sweet Jorja try to figure things out and learn new concepts! She is such a little smarty and I have no doubt after many more nights of bathing in color she will know them all by sight and name!!

Oh my gosh, that is AWESOME!!!
You should totally frame those in rainbow shaped frame.
You are too creative and everytime I'm around I'm not only impressed at what an amazing mom you are, but how hilarious you are!!!!

Oh, and a famous teacher mantra: "steal with pride". We all do it, makes us better!

That is so fun!!! What a cute idea! And I think it counts at being creative if you find the ideas to steal in the first place! I've never seen anything like that so I give you full creativity points for theft! :) Too cute, girl!
