We are visiting Grandma in Indiana. My children are thrilled, they never want to leave. Cookies and milk before bed? Grandma cuddles in the rocking chair, kisses and surprises? I can’t compete. So I have to try even harder to be the cool adult in the house.
The other day, I let them strip down and run butt naked in the sprinkler. I win.
We got some tupperware containers, bowls, little plastic insects and lizards, and made homes for them in the yard. Then we filled them up with water and I busted out the sprinkler for good measure. From there, the clothes came off (of the children) and it was a free for all.
While I can’t in good conscious post pictures of my naked children on the Internet, I can tell you that they have the cutest little butts on the planet. Also, I can beg you to sort through old photos until you find one of yourself running naked through the sprinkler.
It is a rite of passage of childhood and ever so necessary for an unforgettable summer so I am sure you can find one. Also find the ones of yourself with a KoolAid mustache smeared across your face and sticky arms from melting popsicles. Now sigh to yourself…those were the days.
