So the other day I took 6 kids to the pool by myself.
I know, breath a moment, and take that in.
Now this wasn’t any ordinary pool either.
It was a 50 meter pool, with a separate shallow end, and a separate kids pool.
A bit stressful keeping tabs on everyone as they swam with their buddy.
3 were mine, 3 were friends
11 yr old, 11 yr old, 8 yr old, 7 yr old, 5 yr old, and a 4 yr old.
Putting sunscreen on 6 children – awful and long
Seeing friends go down the water slide with huge smiles – delightful
Having the lifeguard tell my daughter to stop climbing up the water slide – not surprising
Having my 4 year old go off the diving board – exciting
Treading water while holding the 4 year old and 5 year old in the deep end – hard
Watching boys race each other in the water – amusing
Losing two pair of NEW goggles – frustrating
Everyone getting out of the pool when I asked – miracle
Arrive home & eating a piece of cake before dinner while hiding in pantry – well deserved.
