I hit that spot and it was like stepping onto a bowling lane, whoop! Flew to the floor and slid across it, bunched up the rug.
That's not right. I would never do this to my grandma.
Anyway, we wiped it up, kept going.
Then the baby had the idea to also touch the flowers. "No, no, no. That's not a good idea." Of course, she persisted because that's how she is, being two and all.
So Julia reached out a hand to move her hand away from the flowers, and knocked over p.j.'s water all over the table. So then towels were needed. Specifically SIX huge towels--to mop up six ounces of water.
I was on the phone with Kirsten during all this, and we laughed. Why not? She knows all about kids.
After lunch, time for the LITTLE POOL!!!
p.j. was very excited, asked a dozen times how long until we could go.
And Kari was babysitting Dan and Alicia's boys, so they came, and Alicia's brother's wife was there with her kids too.
Love always, Val
