Skip Is Such a Pushover!

My kids started begging early this morning for a blow up pool. They desperately needed one, or their spring break would be forever ruined. I said, "No, we don't need a blow up pool, just go turn on the sprinkler system ...again." They persisted, and persisted and I held strong. It is only March for goodness sakes. They continued to beg, even say things like, "We will do ANYTHING!!!" I should have taken them up on it(pulling weeds, cleaning out the garage), but I continued with something like, "No means no. If you keep begging there will be consequences." They then proceded to do what every good, sweet, obedient child of mine would do...They called Daddy. They must have used their "I love you" charm" (which I must admit I often use on him too), because two hours later this was what was happening in our back yard.

Kids know what to do!

How I wish I was in Texas right now with sunshine! We are supposed to be getting 3-6 inches of snow tomorrow - yuck :(

Okay, I just gotta say it. A pool and sprinklers in March????? What is up with that? I was sweeping spring snow off my steps this morning. Something is just wrong with that picture! :vD

Looks like they are enjoying their spring break! And boy did you miss your opportunity to get some chores out of them, girl!

We used to fill up the big black plastic garbage bags full of water to enjoy a nice pool for one! But, I like the one Skip bought; it's big! Maybe the pool will help alleviate Spring Break activities. Your kiddos are too cute!
