Head Dive into the bathtub...

Today while at work I got this email from Marcus:

"Emerson Fell head first into the bath tub when Eli was taking a bath. Clothes and all in she went. She popped up and looked very surprised but survived."

When I inquired about how this happened he sent some follow up information:


"She was trying to reach the alligator and her little feet came up and she was a teeter tooter and in she went, and I must say it was a smooth dive into the water.  it was really funny."

Does it make me a really bad mom that I laughed hysterically at this? (It's also Marcus' description of the event that makes me laugh). Marcus sent me a picture of her in the bath with all her clothes on and she looks so pleased with herself.

*Footnote #1- She loves the bath so it doesn't really surprise me that she was pleased that she somehow ended up in the water. It's hard to give both babies a bath at the same time because Emerson seems to think that she needs to do the back float in water so she can kick with her legs and splash with her arms.  Eli does not appreciate being kicked repeatedly by his water loving sister. So we usually give them baths separately while the other one stands and watches. Hence why Emerson was next to the tub but not in it.

*Footnote #2 - We are lucky that all is well and it's a reminder about how quickly something like this can happen. Luckily Marcus was right there and she apparently is a natural diver who was not hurt or scared in this event.

Funny. I witnessed the same thing myself not too long ago. My son LOVES the bath and is always trying to get in it. Actually, my son and Emerson seem to have a lot in common. Seeing that they are only 3 weeks apart, there might be some kind of future for them.........

That's what I was thinking. I have this feeling that they would really hit it off!
