One of my birthday presents was a bell so I could ring for ‘service’ (wine, newspaper, clean towel, etc) when in the bath. I know. It’s a laugh riot in our gaff. On Sunday, LB was about to get in the bath when I realised the full potential of the new, shiny bell. LB loves baths but has quite a way to go to mastering effective tap control (heat and quantity). We run it for him and leave him to soak. Trouble is, it’s tricky to decipher general chatter from a help request (or outright alarm). This means he doesn’t get much privacy. Dinging the bell could resolve this.
“So LB, if you want anything ding the bell. Like this…” DING!
“Ok? If the water gets too cold or you need anything, just ding.”
“Ok, I’m going in the other room.”
“Wow. That was quick. What do you want?”
“I love Irish lorries Mum.”
