he said / she said
it's sunday and this morning i was thinking...how quickly can we maneuver out of the church parking lot and grab lunch? i wanted to go to the pool. we don't have a pool...we want a pool...but we don't have one.
but we DO have a family pass to the local rec center - which includes the pool. it's no country club but it's better than the plastic kiddie pool we have in the backyard.
i was thinking, now THIS is summer...the kids were ready to swim, the pool was crowded, but manageable, and ben actually entertained himself quite easily in the little pool. not much whining at all - from anyone. i even told rob to turn the car around and grab his book...i didn't roll my eyes or sigh as if to signal the fact that taking the kids to the pool would actually require any help from him.
sun was out, pool was open, kids were happy...half-full.
well, my cup anyway.
