A couple weeks ago, when I was at the pool, I heard a kid saying, "Hey, there's an old woman in the pool." I looked all around before I realized he was talking about me!

The only thing sadder would be if there wasn't an old woman in the pool!

Right on Gail!

A few months ago I took the elf to a birthday party being held at an indoor pool (think YMCA ish).
Birthday boy was turning 5.
I was the.only.mother in the pool with her child. One dad wasin with his daughter. All the rest of the 15 parents - yes mostly moms -of 3 to 5 year olds stood or sat on the side. Some of the kids who couldn't swim had to stay in the one foot baby pool because their parent wouldn't put on a suit.
Now I will certainly not be appearing in a SwimSuit Calendar anytime soon (ever) - but I could not imagine going to this party and NOT going in to play.
I felt sorry for the rest of the parents (and their kids) - what is this? high school? where we are SOOOO concerned with how we look and trying to pick up a date.....
It was a kids' party and an excuse to hop in the pool and be active and silly.

peace & cannonballs
