And I have no idea why or what to do about it. One day last week, he ran away screaming after DH put him in, for no apparent reason. I thought maybe the running water was scaring him, so today I filled the tub before he even came in the bathroom, and I still had the same results. He was clinging to me and screaming. I would just say "oh well, no baths for awile," but if his hair doesn't get wet every few days, it's a real bitch to comb (he has long hair, longer than a lot of girls his age). So I either figure out what's bugging him, cut his hair (which I think would devestate him - he loves his hair), or let him grow dreads. Pouring water on his head doesn't seem to really bother him, oddly enough. Maybe I'll try having him get in an empty tub and dump water from the sink tomorrow. Oh, and showers terrify him, so that's out. The biggest problem is that he doesn't talk yet, so he can't tell me what the problem is. He gets all excited and runs to the bathroom when I ask him if he wants a bath, but then starts shrieking when it's time to get in. Any ideas?
