Bathtime experiments

Mr. T loves to scoop and dump. It's about all he would do in the bath if left to his own devices. And he knows it drives me crazy. So I'm always thinking of ways to either distract him from his scooping and dumping (we both end up frustrated) or to channel it (a much happier solution). During bathtime the other day I poked some holes at various heights around a yogurt tub and gave it to him to experiment with. He had so much fun figuring out how to make this thing work! Some of the things he realized were that he had to fill it up ALL the way to really get some good jets streaming out and, without very much water pressure in it (low level of water), the lower jets just pretty much stopped flowing and just sort of dribbled out. It's a fun new bath toy.
