Good evening Stuart,
I listened with some interest to your story about your little one's current aversion to baths. I used to like baths and would want to stay in the bath for as long as possible, but these days I don't really like them. I think it has something to do with me being taller than the bath, and the fact that I don't really like being immersed in water. Showers are OK, but baths are just lengthy boring pointless ordeals for me.
I've never really been a huge fan of swimming either. I can doggle paddle to stay afloat if necessary, but I can't think of a worse way to spend a hot summer day than swimming…actually, scratch that, watching tennis all day, that would be much worse. Thank goodness that they don't play tennis in pools!
