When I think “bubble bath,” I picture my two little ones individually or jointly splishing and splashing, filling cups and pouring out cups, and making Santa beards with soap. I can hear the echoes of their hearty singing and laughter (gotta love bathroom acoustics!), and crisply envision our nightly scene—the calm before the bedtime storm. I can practically feel their weight as I wrap their wriggling bodies up in oversized towels and wrestle them into tight-fitting jammies—you know, before they’re able to make their great naked escapes.

Oh right, there is the tumultuous toddler bubble bath and then there’s the kid-free glamorous grownup version. And it’s been way too long since I’ve enjoyed the latter.
