So yesterday around 12:30, V and I went to the playground where there is also a wading pool, which opens at 1:30. But I forgot so she didn't wear her swimsuit, and when all the other kids at the playground ran over to the pool at 1:25, I had to get V back in the car to go home. Feeling like a bad mama, I offered the consolation sprinkler, which V had never done before. She was immediately interested, even though I don't own one of those old-school metal ones.In fact, the one we have doesn't even move. It took her a little while to warm up to its watery goodness.
But soon she was running like she'd been doing it her whole life.
Oh, summer: I do love you.
