Advice

When packing your swim bag for a day at the pool with the children, don't forget the following:
  1. At least $300 per child for the snack bar.
  2. Oil free sunscreen for Mom.
  3. Tear free sunscreen for child #4.
  4. Spray on sunscreen for child #3.
  5. Roll on sunscreen for child #2.
  6. Neon purple sunscreen for child #1.
  7. A few token "healthy" snacks to supplement garbage purchased at the snack bar.
  8. Wipes--for cleaning up snacks and the "droppings" which will be left on the lawn by child #4. (He will pull down his swimsuit and GO...right while you are helping #2 get a towel after swimteam!)
  9. Jumbo sized bottle of hand sanitizer.
  10. Water wings, floating rings, diving sticks, flippers, goggles, snorkels, torpedos, sailboats, watering cans, and squirty fish...bring extras for the "friends" who will want to "share"!
  11. Extra set of car keys, since you will lock your original set in the car.
  12. A pair of very dark sunglasses...so you won't have to make eye contact...it's going to be a long afternoon!

Umm...after a day like that I'd be inclined to avoid the pool!

You poor thing - droppings on the lawn by a twinkie? That is more than any one person should bear. Hope you got home, put them to bed, and had a big diet coke and some cookies. You deserve it!

Has he been listening to "Boys do it, girls do it, even adults do it (they're doin it)" The B. girls are all singing about "doin it" but I don't think it's supposed to be done on the lawn.

I always feel like I can hear the Barnum & Bailey circus theme song playing in the background when I get to the pool/beach with all our gear, kids, etc. So funny!
