It is time once again to review what we have learned this week at the pool. The weather was spotty with rain on Monday and a sky full of clouds on Thursday. Cloudy days at the pool are the best as it keeps most of the sun-lovers away and allows for the entire pool for the kids to play.
Here's what we learned:
- Monokinis are mocking me. I have already lamented about these dreadful swimsuits and this week I had the pleasure of seeing a toddler in one. Seriously? Have you lost your butterfly size mind?
- Concessions are addicting. Apparently the most disgusting of concession stand foods is more appealing than whatever Mommy has packed in the cooler.
- "Devious" is the new IT word. My son has started calling everything devious. My favorite line from the Princess Bride, "I do not think that word means what you think that word means" comes to mind often as I listen to him. "That slide is devious." "That diving board is devious." "That little girl's eyes are devious." Okay...he may have been on to something with that last one.
- Umbrellas are temperamental. As we were leaving for the day, a big gust of wind picked up one of the picnic table umbrellas, tossed it over the fence into the parking lot and directly onto of my son. Like an episode of Bay Watch, cute & petite lifeguards (with 0% body fat) rushed to our van. Both the van and my son were unharmed.
- Planking. I am finding this unusual activity somewhat annoying. I watched at the pool as two grown adults decided to have their pictures taken planking both the high dive and the low dive. Needless to say, it wouldn't surprise me if their kid was a toddler in the monokini.
What did you learn?
- I'm a 41 year old (gasp) freelance writer, school cafeteria manager, wife and mother. I have three children and one anxious and overweight beagle. I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
