(The previous episodes can be read here.)
It is summer and we are outside in the backyard.
I just finished rinsing out the hard plastic kiddie pool from the previous day.
Yesterday, they dumped a bunch of sand in it which sunk to the bottom like brown sludge. Kids love brown sludge. They have the ability to create it from almost nothing. Like MacGyver except that he created useful things so not really like him at all.
I turn the hose on and start filling up the pool. This makes me need to pee.
Before I dash inside, I tell them:
Then I run inside to pee.
It takes me 43.7 seconds. I timed it. (No really, while I was drawing the pictures for this post I had to pee so I started the stopwatch on my phone and went. 43.7 seconds. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t exaggerating about the short amount of time I was gone.)
And when I return, did they put sand in the pool?
They put the pool in the sand.
Also, when my site was down for the last few days you may have missed my last post about getting the kids out the door. It was actually a good one (unlike this one which I’m tossing in here since I don’t even know if the site is working) so you can check it out now.
If everything is still broken I’m going to go hide in a closet.
PS – If anyone has emailed me in the last 4-5 days I did not get it so please resend. But only if it is nice or at least full of rainbows or ice cream or baby hedgehogs.
