Daddy on Bath-Duty

When daddy is on evening duty, it's always a fun time. I am so tired lately with the new baby and my pregnancy, so Justin is taking over the evening "duties" much more often than usual. It's so cute that I grabbed a camera to steal some behind-the-scenes shots for our photo books.

Usually the little ones are the first ones to bathe because they love to splash for a while. I typically wash Elia and Vasilisa together, but Justin said he only has two hands, so he washes them one by one (can't help but wonder how many hands he thinks I have? lol) 

The girls jump into the shower next and have their own "beauty routines". I always love listening in on their discussions and beauty secrets - makes me silently giggle. Boys come last. Evyianne is still little, but he and Nikola have such a great bond - I let them mingle even if it is later in the evening. Look at those pictures below - I mean, how is it not heart-melting?! All I can say, Evyianne is SO lucky!

I wanted to share with you some shampoo secrets we practice in the wintertime. Since it's colder and the air is usually dry, I noticed a few years back a tendency of flaky skin and dandruff.

We turned to our pediatrician years back with the baby’s scalp problems. He suggested we use diluted a version of Head & Shoulders to help with issues for cradle cap for the baby. Since Justin occasionally uses Head & Shoulders and we already had it in the shower, I gave it a try for dry winter scalps and it has been a winter-time lifesaver. Head & Shoulders Instant Relief Shampoo has a very effective treatment. It has become a "family shampoo": I reach for Head & Shoulders Instant Relief Shampoo after I get my hair colored because it seems to really seal in the color. It really helps to avoid a dry scalp after color processing. It's very gentle even on my heavily processed hair. Nikola uses it too and it's been a great solution for his teen hormone-ruled hair. 

You can find Head & Shoulders Instant Relief Shampoo and the full product line on Amazon.
