OK! Let's try standing together! Tessa, put your arm around Jack.
OK. He kinda walked away on that one. Try holding him tight.
(Struggle, struggle, squeal, push) Tessa says, "Oh forget it!"
Oh well. This is the best we could do. Done and Done.
It was a fun day for the kids. They got to play water games that involved changing into swimsuits. And there was mention of shaving cream, but I never found out how that factored in exactly. On a personal side note, NEVER get shaving cream in your hair and then immediately jump into a swimming pool. What happens is some kind of insane chemical stripping that no conditioner can touch. Frizz central will ensue. Maybe for days. What? I had a bad camp experience...
So now, ALL of my scheduled activities that involved childcare are over for a few months. Bring on the cross-eyes and lip drumming! I'm ready!
Our summer plans are in their infancy right now. We 'rents are in negotiations about a family vacay. It's in the word flinging phase right now. From me: fun, tradition, meaningful, needed-for-sanity. From Anthony: budget. (And sometimes variations like "travel budget" and "money")
Until that treaty gets signed, we will be filling the standoff time with trips to the park, the library, the pool, the zoo and long nature hikes. I have a love/hate relationship with summer.
