If you’ve never seen a two year old trying to hold onto a floating ring and 2 floatie noodles simultaneously AND try to keep goggles on her face, all while screeching “MINE” to all approaching toddlers, you haven’t lived.
If you’ve never sampled a taste of your 7 year old’s subway sandwich that he insisted include mustard AND ketchup AND mayonnaise, well, you haven’t, um, lived, I guess, if living includes eating something so hideous only a child would think it was good.
If you’ve never crawled into your soft bed at night, exhausted from a summer day of mothering, only to discover that your sandcaked toddler had crawled in earlier and left not only some pokey toys, but also most of the sand from your backyard sandbox, be grateful.
If you’ve never listened to your husband bribe your 7 year old to practice the piano only to be met with surliness and whining, your children are better behaved than mine are. Or you’re smart enough to avoid the whole forced practicing issue all together. Me–I’m kinda dumb.
If you’ve never wondered if your children are going to be scarred forever from the things you make them do as kids, you are clearly a better mother than I am. Or you’ve never tried to make your two year old put her face under the water, blow bubbles, and kick.
It’s going to be long summer. See you at the pool.
