What is it about bubbles anyway? Why do the bubbles at Gymboree last so long?

I LOVED Mr. Bubble brand bubble bath as a kid. We had the powder kind. My kids still have Mr. Bubble though now it comes as a hypoallergenic liquid. Seems like they love it as much as I did. To save time, we throw all three girls in the tub together at bath time. They actually fight over who has more bubbles on her side of the tub. Sigh.

Soap makes bubbles
Shampoo, too.
I like bubbles
How about you?

As the designated hair washer in our family I made this song up just to entertain my daughters while I was washing their hair. Before I could finish my daughter said,

I had a little Turtle,
His name was Tiny Tim.
I put him in the bathtub,
To see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water
And ate a bar of soap.
And now he’s in his bed,
With bubbles in his throat.

Bubble, Bubble, Bubble,
Bubble, Bubble, Bubble,
Bubble, Bubble, Bubble
Bubble, Bubble…Pop!
