We have a new kid-sized pool. And it's been a struggle to explain to the kiddles that 'damn it, it's cold, and you wouldn't go in there anyway' - so even though the day looked like this:
Rosey suited up and went for it. There was a lot of bouncing
and cautious dipping of toes,
and I was just suggesting that this be given up for another (warmer) day, when out of nowhere came this flash! and a splash!
and a kerr-rash!
And The Boy went in. Quickly, because it was really too cold. But he went in.
I think they think that if they pretend it's warm out it will actually be. I wonder if that ever works??
