Poolside Perspective: can you read?

This week's weather wasn't particularly pool friendly. We did squeeze in a few visits and here's what I learned.

No diving. Teaching your kid to dive off the sign that says NO DIVING proves that you are not smarter than a preschooler.

You can't swim like an Olympian. Olympic fever makes people think they too can kick and turn with the best of them. you can't.

Doing laps is hard work. I decided to swim five laps in an inner tube from one side of the pool to the other. No even the long way. The fact that this is tiring is proof that I am completely out of shape. Completely.

If your baby is in the pool, you should be too. Seriously, does someone really need to tell you that if your baby is in a float your ass should be in the pool. Seriously? You are dumber than the person teaching her kid to dive in the shallow.

Keeping your promise and jumping off the high dive with your son = priceless.

What did you learn this week?

It never ceases to amaze me just how stupid people are! A baby in a float with out being there next to it? Not gonna happen with my kid, that's for sure. When my son was little we were in my brothers pool and Jaryd was in this floaty board thing with a mesh seat in the middle. Several kids in the family had used it over the years, so we figured we were good. But hubby and I were both within reaching distance, good thing too. Jaryd reached out to the side and the next we knew his head was down and his feet were in the air. My SIL broke the thing in half and put it in the garbage never to be used again. You just never know what might happen. Can't imagine if we weren't right there what could have happened.

I've learned just because you think you rock a two piece suit doesn't mean you do. My son does not need to see T & A hanging out because your suit is two sizes smaller then your double sized behind. Just saying wear a suit that fits and is age appropriate please
