(This post is not meant to bring up any other past stories about babies in the bath.)
Tonight when DS was taking a bath I went to get the plant on the window sill to give it water and all of the sudden I heard DS screaming/crying. He was kneeling at the edge of the tub and had clearly either just fallen in (from sitting) or had tried to unsuccessfully blow bubbles (which he learned at swimming lessons today). He freaked. He wanted me to grab him, which I did, and I brought him to his room and he sat in the rocker with me (soaking wet, but with a towel around him) for 5 minutes or so. He couldnt tell me what had happened, but he was really shaken up and asked to go to bed.
Now I was not more than 2 feet from him when this happened and had not had my back turned for more than 5 seconds. But I still feel horrible. Accidents happen, I understand that, but I wish that I had been sitting right there playing with him when it did happen.
Just needed to share that. Thanks.
