the world's largest swimming pool

19 May 2012

1. generously undoing my 18 loving trips of lugging the blender pitcher full of water from the kitchen allllllllll the way outside to fill the monstrosity
2. Paddington Bear was careful to never ever break his frown for the entirety of his dip in the pool
3. matching bodies
4. unsolicited affection to apologize for unsolicited violence

Maybe I should've sprung for the six dollar pool instead of buying this four dollar wonder. Whatever. This activity combined with a six minute trip to the playground (crawling with helicopters spraying their young with SPF 180 and following their every blink and whine) this morning better guarantee that the kids will sleep until Simon returns home from work at sundown. Or at the very least (because I very unfortunately discovered that swim diapers are only good at pretending to absorb urine -- not any other bodily product -- natural disaster)  -- it will launch me into the running for Mother of the Millennium ... and beyond.

  1. Too funny! I wish we actually had a back deck for a giant pool of our own.
    Instead, we'll settle for the snail-infested lake across the street.

  7. Oh my gosh....I am laughing so hard at #3. When 2 tiny babes can barely fit into an inflatable pool, you know you've got a situation on your hands!

  15. Isn't going outside the worst with a baby? Before kids, I just had to make sure my legs were shaved before enjoying the sun...maybe. Now, it's sunscreen and hats and swim diapers and snacks and blankets and don't eat that and so much. So much.
