Calming the Kids with Mom2MemphisAndRuby + GIVEAWAY!

Hey there!
I'm so happy Laura invited me to hang out on Our Reflection while she's on holidays!
My name is Lena and I blog over at Mom2MemphisAndRuby and Lena B Photography!  I'm a mom of 2 wild and wacky kids and they certainly keep me on my toes!!  They're at that age now {4 & 6} where they either get along fabulously... or not at all.

Case in point.  I used to LOVE bath time.  It was a nice "wind down" from our day... there was nothing better than hanging out in a warm room listening to their giggles & splashes, am I right?  Not to mention the smell!  Oh, babies smelll sooooo good after a bath!

Well, that has changed a lot in the past year or two.

When they do take a bath together, there's splashing alight... AND lots of whining and screaming too.  Nobody thinks they're dirty and nobody thinks they need their hair washed.  The whole thing has been quite unpleasant.  

Until I remember something I saw on Pinterest a while back.

Glow sticks!!
Can I get an "Amen!?"

I'm totally serious!  Grab a few of these, turn off the lights and it's a whole new experience!  They LOVE it!  And it's such an inexpensive "treat" at the end of the day!  They're having fun, and I get to make sure they're clean... without any screaming or arguing.  It's a win-win!

So, that's just a tip from one mother to another!
I'd love to hear your tips for keeping bath time under control!

You can visit me on Facebook & Twitter too!

And since I'm here... I'd love to offer you the chance to win 2 months medium ad space on my blog!
It'll be a great way to get to know each other better!
