I should've known better
In an effort to create a little more fun for the two 3 year old boys that are hanging out here at the house together this summer I bought a little pool this weekend. It is one of those that has one small ring to blow up on the top and then the pool stands on it's own as it begins to fill. Needless to say they have been thrilled today! I have it right out on the back porch so it doesn't get too much sun and they have toys galore. Every once in a while the water rushes out of the pool from some little feet standing on it and we have to put a little more in. So, with water running and children laughing I decide to come in and check email, fb etc... I opened the window right beside the computer table (which is in the dining area of the kitchen so it is right there where I can look and talk to them while they are playing. Imagine my surprise when I was hit with an enormous shot of water that soaked my right side, everything on the computer table, the keyboard, the end of the kitchen table and halfway across the edge of the kitchen floor. After the moment of shock wore off- I had to laugh at myself and say "I should've known better. Currently they are now on the trampoline jumping up and down and spraying each other with the hose- water waster- nope - you can hand water at anytime and it is about time the grass under the trampoline got some water : ) Here is to each of you and your summer fun- May you use more common sense than I do! Enjoy!
