Remembering Rubber Ducky, Bubbles & Little Boys
Rubber Ducky, you're the one,
You make bath time lots of fun,
Rubber Ducky, I'm awfully fond of you;
Rubber Ducky, you're so fine
And I'm lucky that you're mine
Rubber ducky, I'm awfully fond of you.
As a momma to 8 boys (who are all grown up now..sniffle) there have been plenty of baths with lots of bubbles to scrub those little fellas clean again! We scrubbed them clean day after day but they always found the dirt again! We lived on acres in the country and they played to their hearts content outside and there was never any dirt that couldn't be scrubbed off!
In our house-that-Roger built we had a huge cast iron double sink in the laundry room. It was the perfect spot for Saturday night baths for dirty little boys, rubber ducky and lots of bubbles. When we sold that first home and started over - the sink was something I was NOT going to leave behind. It came with us but I had no idea where it would find a space to put it...until our dream of a owning a farm came true a few years ago. We were able to purchase the 88 acres farm that joins our 95 acres and give it lots of love and hard work to bring it back to life.
Here sits "the sink" today in our venue's kitchen at The Farm at Greene Acres.
We obtained it way back in the '80's when the hospital that our first 3 children were born in was set for demolition. We were given a tip that everything was being taken out before the wrecking crew started work. Roger was able to get this gorgeous heavy cast iron sink from the janitors room at the hospital.
Now 40 years later we still have the sink that came from the hospital where our first 3 children were born, where all our children enjoyed bubble baths to get squeaky clean and now is installed in the server's kitchen at our Farm.
I just love things like this that fill my surroundings that have memories attached to them. I'd love to hear about a favorite memory of rubber ducky or anything to do with fluffy bubbles and bathtime fun for your little ones!
My little grand loves to play in a tin tub on my back porch with bubbles.
Big sink or tin tub....It's free homemade fun especially if Rubber Ducky is there!
