Remember when I wrote part one?
Cute sprinkler happiness and all that jazz.
But as I recall, there were a couple comments left on that post wherein someone stated they did not have a yard to frolic in, nor sprinklers to revel in.
I have the solution for you.
Who needs a yard?
Who needs sprinklers?
All you need is...
a mud puddle!
It provides hours upon hours of gritty happiness.
The neighbors can even come over and join in the fun!
Okay, in all truth and honesty, I didn't realize they were playing in a mud puddle until it was just to darn, stinkin' late.
Jacob was curious and watched as he soaked his whole self in the murky water.
Alayna decided to play copy cat, but didn't realize that he wasn't lapping the water.
Don't worry, when I saw what she was doing, I put a stop to it. Sheesh! What kind of mother do you think I am?
Still, I take comfort in knowing my children will have strong immune systems.
Because that's the kind of mother I am.
Happiness, pure and simple.
See? No yard, no sprinklers.
Just a mere puddle.
Now you can enjoy that last couple weeks of summer.
On a completely and totally different subject that has absolutely nothing at all to do with what you just read in any way, shape or form, I got a call from my friend Gina yesterday.
See, she has the very mistaken notion that I am a blogging Goddess, which I'm sure is abundantly clear to everyone else here today that I am not.
However, she asked if I would blog about a "cutest kid" contest that one of her daughters is a finalist in.
At first she offered all kinds of incentives, like chocolate and babysitting.
But then I must have I appeared slightly hesitant or something because she threatened to never babysit for me again! She may even vandalize my secret chocolate stash, because she's a woman and could probably sniff it out..
And since I am desperate enough to do anything that secures free babysitting, here I am, blogging away about it.
So hop on over to the contest and vote for Jo Jo, number 15 so I can get as much babysitting out of Gina as possible. She's the very last picture! Thanks!
Okay, you know I blogged about it simply because she asked.
And Jo Jo is just too adorable.
