Like any family with small children the end of the day is nothing less than chaotic at our house. To borrow a term from a friend we call it ‘happy hours’. The time between 5pm and 8pm when we are trying to feed, bath, wind-down, read-to, and put to bed two little people, not to mention try and look after ourselves a little.

Bathtime features big in our evening ritual, our house is designed a little oddly that the kitchen is located between the bathroom and the toilet. Which is weird, but surprisingly useful that I can cook dinner and keep and eye on the bath at the same time. Anyway, I digress. Bathtime is great, it keeps Master Two occupied for at least half an hour, and the other day I gave him this and he loved it. A couple of squirts of shaving cream in tubs, a few drops of food colour and he could do painting in the bath. I loved it too, all the mess, (I mean art) was contained in the bath and at the end I could just wash it all down so quickly.
