The kids are baked golden brown and I have a gorgeous farmer tan.
You can never pass up a sunny day without going outside to enjoy the weather. It's the rules. So that's where you can find me most days. I'm outside watching the kids swim and reading a book by the pool.
In fact I'm enjoying the lazy summer attitude so much my kids are beginning to question me.
Emerson: Mom. When are you going to make dinner? I think you'd better start making it because it's getting late and I'm hungry. (Time-- 4:50 in the afternoon)
Me: It's summer time so we're not on a schedule. I'll get to it soon.
Zoey: Mom, I'm tired and it's time for you to put me to bed.
Me: Ummm... OK. (Let me assure you it was only about 10 minutes past her bed time but she ripens for bed quicker than a week old banana.)
Breckyn: Mom. I think we need to plan some activities and leave the house.
Me: Don't you want to just swim and enjoy the outdoors? (It's free and I don't have to pack the car.)
Apparently I have failed to teach them the art of lounging around. I'm working on it but these guys are a hard sell. Anyone want four very timely organized children to keep you on schedule? They are better than any alarm clock I tell ya.
...and if you need me, I'll be lounging by the pool.
