I struggled with what to write for this one. I didn’t know if I wanted to explain how it came from a German origin in the 1500’s. Or if I wanted to tell about how in the past it was a weekly bath for the family… father first, then sons, then mother, then daughters and then last was the baby in the very dirty water – so you almost couldn’t see the baby in the dirty water.
I tried to come up with a comparison I could use in a story, got nothing though. So instead of writing about throwing the good away when you are trying to get rid of the bad… I am just going to say that baby is just too cute to throw out.
