Bathtime Struggles

Anyone else struggle getting their little one in the bath?  Landon used to LOVE taking a bath but man does he fight me these days.  Usually it is a big battle just to get him into the tub.  I'm not sure why, but it is!  He fights, yells, throws himself on the ground, the works really!  Any tips for making bath time a little less dramatic?

My youngest has been like this recently also.  Once she's in the tub, she's usually fine, but getting her there has been a struggle.  I try and bribe her, offering her bubbles or that she can do something special once her bath is over, but that doesn't work often and I can't find anything else that works.  My middle one has started taking more showers and the litlte one wants to, but I am not comfortable with that quite yet, and they used to take a bath together, but it got too rowdy and we'd end up with a flooded bathroom!  No hints sorry, just commiserating!

Well I'm glad I'm not alone! lol  Landon is good once he's in the bath too... but wrestling him into the bath is the biggest struggle.  I guess I'll just hope it is a phase he'll outgrow!
