Sunday Musings and the p in pool

I slept on it ... again badly because I insist on staying up so late ,then side sleeping because we co sleep and I knew as I drifted off to sleep I was dreaming while I was still awake ... giggling in fact but can't remember WHY now ... I was too tired

I would like to pass on the Nice Matters award to ...

Tiff @ Three Ring Circle because she is really one of the very nicest people I have really met via the Internet

Dallas Miao'd because she is well really nice and I love her cat and purrs

Rachel @ Heart of Rachel -she always takes the time to visit people and leave meaningful comments and

Amy @ Amy's Random thoughts because she is just so nice and nice matters.
A few others I considered already had this award.

Today was such a beautiful day ... my three sons enjoyed a sploshing and splashing in a $12 blowup pool , my husband oiled our outdoor spa (we haven't used it for nearly 2 yrs) and we went traipsing through a real 'junk' yard ... looking for 'stuff' ( don't ask ... new gates well old ones to get re powder coated to save $$ and the environment -it's a work in progress ) .

It is the simple pleasures in life that make you smile .

It is supposed to be a spaceshipp ppool ... yes I think there are probably a few extra pees in there now. Lucky it has a built in drain plug. I need to go buy some re usable cloth swim nappies before I let them in our spa or other peoples pools. I can't justify the co$t of disposable swim nappies.

I can see they will have a lot of fun with this pool while it lasts. See the bulging on one side probably due to over enthusiastic pumping with the air compressor. Hubby says it's a sign of it being cheap !

The boys have already tried to sink their half pint teeth in too. Oh well ... it would cost me $15.80 to take them to a nearly indoor play centre , inside a factory unit, with no air conditioning and no outside food /drink allowed in ... so I figured $12 is a small price to pay for a few hours joy.It is was in the shade of the shade shelter . They have room for a friend (s) too.

They were so funny to watch. S took a while to find out it was fun - the first time he cried and we took him out soon after. J laughed and splashed about tossing the toys overboard. A short time later S was happy to go in again splashing and laughing. Our teen wasn't so happy because it wasn't deep enough for him ... he dipped out .

Friday, I noticed J has a new tooth and tonight S is walking even more and more. My heart is just bursting with the joy of the moment. Thank you Lord for this fine day.

I think S has ripped a little of the frenulum linguae under his tongue (not elsewhere as some may know it as another part of the male anatomy)-where he had a slight tongue tie too - hard to see exactly because he won't let me in his mouth. My poor darling. I cannot imagine how people can get this pieced.

Waterplay is the best! My boys would play in a sink full of water, in the bathtub, in the toilet(if the lock wasn't working) and in our little backyard pool. I threw in some measuring cups and a few other non-essiential(to me) cooking implements and they were busy forever!

Isn't it just a joy to watch them?

Thanks Trish for the award!

Ivy and Noah love water play. We have the double shell happening right now. Most hot days I have been stripping them down and they have played the afternoon away in there.

Thank you very for this sweet award and for the kind words you said about me. I really appreciate it.

Glad the kids had a wonderful time in your new pool. I'm not aware of disposable swim nappies. They would come very handy for swimming parties.

I also think small pleasures in life can bring overwhelming joy to the heart.
