Here’s a little Slip ‘N Slide summer fun hack for you. If you add a little bit of baby shampoo to the Slip ‘N Slide surface it makes it even more slippery. Don’t blame me, though, if you have an involuntary ovarian twitch or three because your kids smell like freshly bathed bald headed baby goodness.
You know it’s summer in Middle Tennessee when it’s only 88 degrees but it feels like 108.
We spent a good ten hours at the pool this weekend. I feel like it’s my duty as some point to write a PSA about the vast differences in getting ready for an afternoon at the pool pre-kids and post-kids as sort of birth control for those who think parenting is a breeze. Miss C is quite a good swimmer but Miss C hasn’t quite gotten the hang of it yet, although she is a fantastic swimmer under water. She is also as stubborn as a mule and somehow manages to strategically kick me in the groin or shin every time we get in the pool. Still, we’re long removed from the swim diapers days and I can actually relax when hubby is with us because we don’t both have to be in the water at all times with the girls. It’s difficult to relax, though, when you’re on your lounge chair next to a tattooed woman spraying tan amplifying oil all over herself. I was in disbelief. I felt like I was having a flashback to my dad’s houseboat on the lake in 1985.
Speaking of summer fun, I’ve posted a giveaway for an ecoaquarium and two African Dwarf Frogs from Wild Creations on my review blog. These are great small, low maintenance pets. They don’t bark to be let out at 4:30 a.m. every other #*@$% day.
In case you’re wondering, yes we still have crabs.
