It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.
The threat of rain was there the whole time, but just like #1 said, it wasn’t going to rain. And, it didn’t.
We headed off to a friend of a friend’s pool for some pool and BBQ Memorial Day fun.
#1 didn’t warm up to the water very well. In fact, after putting on her lifejacket and tossing her in, her head went under the water and she was done. She later recounted the story and told a friend “and then, my mommy threw me in the water. That’s didn’t go very well.” The girl cracks me up. She was then content to play on the steps.
#2 took a while, but after she ate her cupcake, she literally scooted right into the pool. Twice. After that, we put on #1’s unused “swimmies” and #2 was in heaven. She had me pull her all around the pool while she was kicking and laughing.
And me? I was relieved. It was so much easier watching her in the pool then watching her play around the pool with the BBQ going.
And, I was finally having fun with her, too!
And just for comparison, here is #1 (the same age as #2 is above….19 months) and Me (I was pregnant with #2) almost exactly 2 years previous…she really didn’t enjoy the pool then, either.
