I'm a lucky mama, with an amazing husband that lets me stay at home with our little boy. I have found that the internet has really helped with everyday life. I wanted to start my own blog to share with other busy women ways to make life just a little easier! From DIY tips to tricks of raising the little ones, from decorating ideas to that Friday night cocktail we deserve. I look forward to sharing & hearing from you!
Ok, back to the pool...
After today, I have learned that my trips to the pool will be MUCH different from now on
and I've learned that I am NOT a fan of "baby" pools.
Why you ask?
#1 Pee We all know it happens. I witnessed my own kid take a #2 while wading around the 1 ft pee bath. It definitely didn't make me feel better when a 4 yr old not wearing a swim diaper makes direct eye contact with me & says "I peed". Thanks for the confirmation!
#2 Bugs I am not a fan of them. Living or dead. Usually the ones in the little pool are in buggy heaven.
I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Creeps me out either way!
#3 Toys I feel like I had to carefully investigate which toys Mason would like to play with. All the while explaining to him that those boats & trucks weren't his, but I would be sure to get his very own next time.
#4 Parents Some parents pay no attention to their children. Maybe me being a first time mom, I am a little more observant than necessary. But if your kid is throwing stuff & snatching things out of the other kids hands, maybe it's time for some discipline?
I felt like such a rookie!
How did I know that trucks are just as cool cruising around the pool, as they are in dirt...
Pretend fishies are great & it is ok for the kids to squirt each other with water guns...
Back to basics, good 'ol fashion fun...I like it!
With a plan for tomorrows trip to the pool,
here is hoping that Mason warms up to the idea of the pool.
