she wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny...

Here in Minneapolis, we are blessed with beautiful parks with wonderful wading pools almost every few blocks. We have three--nay, FOUR--that we frequent that are all very close to us. Did I mention that these are wading pools? They are glorified kiddie pools. They are not Spring Break 2008 beaches with crashing waves and calypso music and beer bongs and MTV filming a reality show nearby at Senor Frogs. So, I wonder why some of these local leathery Mommies wear string bikinis...at the BABY POOL? I mean, seriously. These are supposed to be family-friendly pools. In my narrow opinion, I find it cruel and heartless for the super tan, super skinny Mommies to show up in their pookah beaded bikinis. Even worse....the babysitters with no wear and tear on the engine.

Alrighty. Now that I got that off my (thrice-a-mommy) chest, I'm going to go pack up the pool bag and head out.

On a different note, I like the pictures on the side. I especially appreciate the "warms my heart. drives me nuts" comment under Miles's picture. What IS it about child #2? So true of my middle one, as well.
