Wash, Rinse and Spin
Do you ever just want to bag the entire bath thing because it's just too hot and you really don't feel like filling a tub, water mess, taking a post to watch kids play and prevent more water mess. Well today I figured out our summer fun and our bath all in one. I am sure many a clever mother has gone before me on this one, but hey it took me until the 5th one to figure this out. Better late than never.
It will require a bath before coming indoors and what a hoot and a holler these boys are having. Pictures are worth a thousand words, but what about a thousand bubbles. It's nearing the end of a busy day. Everyone could use some cooling off in our pool, which is not much except it has our make shift slide. Add some organic bubble bath and you have happy, clean, and tired boys after an hour of this kind of fun. A quick hosing off before coming indoors and boys are beat, hungry, and ready for a less mellow time.
I loved hearing the boys yelling and screaming and pretending that they were in snow. I loved how they tossed bubbles onto a nearby wasp nest that has been keeping us on our toes. I love how they coming sliding down and dunk into the bubbles all the while getting a good washing, a good rinse from mom the hose holder, and then going for another round or in this case spin.
Life is about seizing the moments and this today was one of them. And from now on, as long as the weather allows guess where my boys will be bathing. I wanted to invite all the neighbor kids over for a dip and give all the moms a break from bath time's usual routines, but I think I will stick with rub a dub dub three boys in a pool.
