first pool day
I’ve been a little sad as I’ve started to see all these great pool pictures from friends taking their little ones swimming. I didn’t get a pass this year as I knew taking 3 kids to the pool by myself wasn’t going to happen. But this morning, my friend Lori asked if we wanted to meet at Sholem. Her girl, Avery, is a fabulous babysitter-in-training. She held Miles for a good majority of the morning and had no problem missing out on the swimming fun. Owen and Ellie acted like they hadn’t missed a beat with swimming and were both braver than I had anticipated them to be. They blew bubbles in that water and both went down the slide. I definitely could not have done it by myself. Ellie refused to get out while I nursed Miles, so Lori played with her. And taking Owen to the bathroom was much easier without having to drag the other two along. And the best part – the long afternoon naps had by all. Even Owen who hasn’t taken a nap in quite a while!Thanks ladies (and Ryder). We can’t wait to go again!
