Now that Zane is such an accomplished swimmer bath time is totally different. When I go to pour water on his head in preparation for shampooing or rinsing he instantly dives underwater and stays there. It’s a little unnerving how long he can stay under. It’s also pretty handy compared to the old technique. Last night I asked him if he’d tried floating on his back with his head partially submerged. He was game enough to try it, holding his breath since he wasn’t too sure about the safety of it all. His face, floating disembodied in the bubbles like that, reminded me of a little moon floating about a sea of stars.
