Indoor Swimming Pool

My eight-year-old son came downstairs wearing nothing but his bathing suit. 

"Bubba," I said.  "What do you think you're doing?"

"Going swimming."

I looked at that boy.  "Dude, it's twenty degrees outside, and the pool is closed.  You're not going swimming."

The boy grinned.  "Yes, I am. Would you like to see the pool?"

I couldn't wait.  I followed him into the kitchen where a large rubbermaid container was sitting on the floor.  And guess what?  It was full of water.

My boy hopped in and started splashing.  "Do you like my pool?"

Oy!

  2. Get him wet and soapy and let him slide around on the floor. He can be Scrubber Bubba.

  13. If I ever have children half as entertaining as yours, I will consider myself a lucky momma! I can't believe the things they come up with! And it's so fantastic that you'll have such a great record for them when they're older. :)
