Flashback Friday Moment of The Week: 4/13/2018

by Just Juan

So I had a bit of a landmark moment this evening: I gave Ashton a bath for the first time by myself. It was pretty uneventful but I saw a couple of suds from the soap I used to wash his body and thoughts of my childhood came to mind. That brings me to this week’s moment in the Flashback Friday series: Mr. Bubble Original Bubble Bath .

How I first came across this moment? I was living with Grandma Sallie when I was introduced to Mr. Bubble. My aunt, Tracey, had bought it for me and used it in my bath.

What it meant to me then? The feeling when a 4-year-old is introduced to bubbles in their bath for the first time is one of those things that really can’t be described in words. I believe you need video footage or photographic evidence to see the overwhelming joy. Anyway, here’s my best go of it in words: I felt super excited for all of the obvious reasons one would be excited about bubble baths as a 4-year-old.

What it means to me now? I haven’t really messed around with Mr. Bubble since I was maybe 8 years old. I had to Google it to make sure it was still around…and it is. I’m not waiting until Ashton is 4 years old to introduce him to it though. At some point in 2020, when he’s 2 years old, I’ll drop a few caps into his bath water and watch his reaction. For me, it would be just another moment from my childhood that I can share with him.
