First you get a swimming pool...

Linking up with Time for Mom!

Today was a good day to be Mom. 

Mondays are full days at school for PJ, and when I picked him up at 3, he was a hot, sweaty mess after playing on the playground. He got a good report from his teachers, so we made a quick pit stop on the way home. Twenty minutes later, this was happening:




The pool, brand-new from the box, was a little misshapen, but it didn't bother PJ in the slightest. He slid, he splashed, he jumped and swam, getting out only to run to me and express his happiness with a "Whooooo hooooo!"

The best part? The 4:30pm tantrum that PJ has executed nearly every day for the past two weeks was totally averted. Completely worth $17.50. For sure. 


It's hard to argue with that face. 

Today ended up being a stellar Monday after a few weeks of days with, at least, a few difficult moments in each. Skipping that 4:30 meltdown seemed to do everyone some good, and it was a happy, dirty, grass-speckled kiddo in the bathtub tonight.
