Aden's new thing is he ALWAYS wants to be outside. When I go to let the dogs out, he will literally go and stand and sob by the door. When we go inside and he isn't ready, he will sit down, shake is head no, and cry.Therefore, we have been spending most of our days outside. Today it hit 90. It was hot. We were outside for about 10 minutes when I just had to come in, it was too sweaty. Well of course Aden started screaming. I then had the brilliant idea to get the baby pool out! I never thought i'd HAVE to do that in May, but whatever. I got our suits on (I actually
just put a little swimmer diaper on Aden. We weren't trying to impress anyone with cute suits) filled up the pool, got a towel and some toys, and we headed out.
Too bad for me Aden didn't much care about the pool. He'd get in every so often to cool off and splash me but he was way more interested in walking down the burning hot sidewalk and climbing in his cozy coupe. I, however, was looooooving the baby pool. Baby Pool = awesome excuse to have a baby.
At about 2:15, Aden decided he was done and was ready for a nap. I took him in and he fell asleep in about 5 minutes. I made some lemonade, got my physiology notebook, and headed back out to the baby pool. Yeah, that's right. I sat in the baby pool for an hour with my lemonade, studying physiology. I looked like an idiot. But hey, I got some tan lines and it was SO relaxing. This will definitely be happening more this summer. Possibly tomorrow (high of 87 or something ridiculous)
Also, you know what else isn't a fun game? Pulling all the clothes out of every reachable drawer. I do laundry enough as it is, folding and putting away shouldn't need to be done 5 times a day every day.
