Speaking of bathtime, have you met Glassy?
Glassy is a navy blue Huggies shampoo bottle. Plus conditioner. Bubblin’ Berry. He’s about six inches tall and has a bright red cap. He’s in charge of shampoo distribution for the first-floor bathroom, and takes his job very, very seriously.
Each night, as I squeeze shampoo into my palm and ask him to lie back, Ian insists that I give credit where credit is due. ‘Say, “Thank you, Glassy!”‘
‘Thank you, Glassy!’
‘Good!’ Ian smiles, and I’m allowed to wash his hair.
