Paisley and Polkadots
Unless I have something incredibly personal to write about, I'm going to post on this blog (instead of the private blog). I miss my Blogger friends and I'm reasonably certain that my kids aren't shy and probably won't care that I share some of their life here.
For the last two days, we've had record breaking heat in San Jose. How can a temperature nearly equivalent to my body temperature feel so damned hot? It seems like it should be just about perfect but it's unbearable and we're all stuck inside the house with our noses pressed up against the sliding glass door waiting for the mercury to drop below 90 so we can go out and play.
Yesterday, we dug last summer's swimsuits out of seasonal storage so we could play in the water in the backyard. The instant they saw them, girls wanted to go to the pool and turned up the charm full blast. They finally had to settle for playing with the garden hose instead (an equally exciting option that doesn't require that Mommy shave her legs).
The suits fit so much better this year because we're not wearing a swim diaper. Maybe we'll try swim lessons so they can do something in their bathing suit other than just look adorable.
