Let me first say, this was MY idea.
Me & My Big Ideas.
It seemed like such a good idea at the time.
But now, well, let me just say that I am so sore from Slippin'-N-Slidin', that it hurts when I sneeze. My knees hurt, my belly/torso hurt. It is not for the dainty divas. But, then again...who ever thought it was, right?
Evidence of my hands-on-parenting:
To note about the above picture:
* Do not wear a bikini on the Slip-N-Slide
* Yes, I am aware that the swimsuit I'm wearing is old, and faded, and according to Hubby, "hideous". I don't care. It's a total mom-suit. It doesn't slip off in any direction, and you can toss a toddler on the hip & not worry about any flashing of any kind. Yes, it's a good mom-suit. So what if it's ugly? right???
Now, how do you teach a 2 year old to Slip-N-Slide? Ummm...it's not easy. In the end, it was more like Bowling with Babies....
Followed by the shrill of "Let's Do It Again!!!!"
Rinse & Repeat.
And then...Baby Gage played "Kicky Ball" on the "water slide". It was a good time...Tiring, and painful, but a good time...
