I Was A Little Dirty (Blu too)

Hi, it's me, Klu, the Clean Bear.

I had a bath today, cuz I wasn't a tan bear anymore -- I'd turned into a grayish-brown bear. (I was a grayish-brown bear from all my 'ventures. 'Ventures make you dirty sometimes.) My bath turned out to be the 'citing-est thing ever, cuz our house has a sink in the kitchen that's bear-bathtub-size. I didn't know if I'd like to have a bath or not, cuz I never had one before. But it was lots of fun. First, me and Big Mummy ran the water, with lots of bubbles. (Kind of like Bubble Bees, my favorite computer game, where you catch the bees in bubbles. The red bee flies really fast, and sometimes a clock flies by.)

Then, I was gonna dive in, but I changed my mind and put my toes in first. (That was cuz I never took a bath before, and I didn't really want to dive in.)

When I first got in the water, I didn't like it very much. It felt all squiggly on my tummy and stuff. I wanted to get out, but Big Mummy said she would stay right there and it would be okay. (I didn't cry.) Then I started to like it a lot, so I put my head under the water. It felt funny in my ears, all that water. I never had water in my ears before. But then I did a little swimmin'. I like swimmin' a lot. I floated on my tummy, and then I swam on my back. Then I did some divin', and touched the bottom and stuff.

Then I got lonely, being in the bathtub and having all that fun by myself, so I asked Auntie E if Blu could swim too. She thought that was a good idea, cuz Blu was even dirtier than me. (He was dirtier than me, cuz he's older than me, so he's had more 'ventures.)

Blu just put one toe in at first (he didn't dive in either) but then he climbed in and put his head under too. When he got 'justed to bein' in the water, we floated on our backs. Bears like swimming. We swam a lot. We swam so much that the water turned brown. It was all that dirt from our 'ventures. Big Mummy and Auntie E were 'mazed by how brown the water was.

We didn't want to get out of the bath, cuz it was warm in there, and real shivery on the counter. But then the water started getting cold, so we had to get out. Then we sat in the sunshine in the window to get dry. I'm all nice and dry now. My fur feels nice. I like being clean.

I wanna get dirty again real fast, so I can take another bath.

  7. Oh my gosh! I love them both wrapped in the towels (washcloths). What an original post!

  8. Hi...I am walking down the midway at THE BESTEST BLOG CARNIVAL and enjoyed your attraction...

  9. Oh, noooooo! That is just TOO DANG CUTE! I know, I know, those first baths can be very scary, but once you discover how great they are you start finding all SORTS of excuses (I've got a headache, I think I'll take a bath). So, maybe you just need a headache instead of more 'ventures to get to have another bath?

  10. What a cute, cute story. Do you feel better now that you've been in the bubbles! Great adventure in the tub. You have quite the imagination. Enjoyed reading your carnival submission.
