We are at the pool. It is Crappy Aunt’s pool and we have it to ourselves.
Crappy Boy is pretending to be a shark.
He dives down under the water near Crappy Papa.
And then Crappy Boy does it again.
And again. Laughing like a maniac when he comes up for air.
Crappy Papa is annoyed.
He distracts him. The shark morphs into a friendly frog.
But not for long.
Pantsing sharks are just too much fun.
Crappy Papa asks for my help.
He wants me to save him from the shark. But I’m no lifeguard.
I do have some parental advice though.
I know exactly how to get kids to stop doing something annoying.
I bestow one of my secret parenting methods on him so he can save himself.
He whines that my method doesn’t work.
But he is wrong. He just isn’t implementing it properly.
