It has been over 80 degrees for the past two days at least. I've been sending the kids into the backyard to play, but before long, I'll hear nothing but 'I'm hot. I want to come in. Can I watch tv?'
It's really the first time I've ever just turned them loose in the yard. I don't want to wish their little lives away, but when they get old enough to do certain things, it's just cool!
The house gets much quieter when they're outside. For those of you who know us personally, you know that my son has no volume control. I say it all the time, "If he could just tone it down, he'd be close to perfect." Seriously though. He is just loud. All the time. The dynamic of the whole house changes when that kid is outside...or unconscious.
You can actually hear yourself think.
You can have a conversation with someone without yelling. Even on the phone...
Bless his little heart...
Pretty soon we'll have to break out the kiddy pool...and refill it everyday because the water has gotten close to boiling overnight. Who likes to swim in warm water? I think that's called a bath.
Another thing we'll have to do soon...mow the lawn. Did you hear me honey? I said 'Another thing you'll have to do soon is mow the lawn.' Ahem.
I'm really glad that the warmer weather is here...I'm just not looking forward to the 'you could fry an egg on the pavement' heat. It's coming. No doubt.
I think we'll invest in a few extra water guns this summer...Evan's old enough to defend himself now.
Better yet, which of you fabulous people have a big pool to share, hmmmm??
