Summer night, Bath night

Child, you are covered in

Bug juice

Sunscreen juice

Watermelon juice

Popsicle juice

Ice cream juice

Juice box juice

Bubble soap juice

Tree juice

Grass juice

Dandelion juice

Dirt juice

Mud juice

Puddle juice

Worm juice

Summer juice

Child, you are completely

Sticky

Stinky

Dirty

Grimy

Filthy

Yucky

Child, is there a kid under there?

A hose won’t do

Time for a bath

Scrub the knees

Scrub the elbows

Scrub the ears

Scrub the belly button

Scrub the toes

Scrub the places

Nobody knows

Water, soap, shampoo

Rinse, Repeat

Story, song, prayer

Child, it’s time to for sleep juice

Good night!
