I took KaileyShopping yesterday to pick out a new bathing suit. The thoughts of her tushie hanging out of a skin tight bikini bottom (2 sizes too small), was enough incentive to warrant
needing a new one. After all, school will be out soon and we will be spending many days at the local pool.
Which reminds me, I think we will need to rethink the need of buying a plastic pool for the yard this year.
No waisting gas at $4.00 a gallon!
No fees to swim
Not having to keep up with two kids and a baby at an over crowded pool. (with every darecare/camp visiting) Not having to leave 15 minutes after arriving with disappointed kids, because the pool was evacuated due to a poop log swimming in the pool. (which has happened three times! Nasty daycare kids, it's just NOT funny anymore!)
the list is endless...
So were shopping and I let her take a pile of bathing suits in the dressing room to pick one. She had a blast and I was just happy I wasn't the one trying them on. Having to look in the mirror and see every flaw you own...TORTURE! She's still young and firm so to her is was just alot of fun. I am just thrilled she is still at the age where I can influence her into getting what pleases me. I'm sorry but I don't know of any 10 year old that needs a push up padded bikini top! What are these manufactures thinking? I mean really Come ON! What is it exactly they think they are going to squeeze and push up? (Nothing on my daughter, that's all I know!)
I remember when I was little my bathing suits were alot more wornout then theirs gets. The bottom print would be wore down white through the fabric. From scraping my butt on the cement steps of our pool in Florida. One thing their bathing suits will never endure in a little play pool. They get swimming lessons where as my mom just threw me in and you either sank or learned real fast how to swim. All part of the memories I was talking about last night at the dinner table. That was till Jason descided to try and out do me. (silly man) Going on and on about how he had a pool growing up too. The facts;
Jason & his pool-
Grew up way North where it's cold (my thoughts...I didn't think people had backyard pools up there. )
Probably only had two months of the summer, when he could actually swim because of the cold
Turns out his pool was only 4-5 ft deep, and needed to be assembled. (You mean, Blowing it up??)
And...It was an above ground pool!!
was in my back yard
you could swim all year round
A Concrete pool below the gound
9ft in the deep end
And Had a diving board
I told him he didn't have a Real pool, he had a Wal-mart pool!
Needless to say, he had plenty to rebuttle and didn't like my Wal-mart comment!
( yeah yeah yeah, so you had some little deck built around it, and it took more than air to put it together...Bah ha ha ha!)
In the end I still won the challenge with.... "Oh Yeah well I got to go to Beach, Everyday!"
(Daytona Beach, So... nana nana boo boo stick your head in doo doo)
PS: Turns out he didn't even have walmart!
