I know, it's been quiet over here at The Spice Rack. We've just been outside. A lot. Which means we've been sweating. A lot. Which means I had to high tail it over to a store to get a kiddie pool before the retail industry deemed summer over with the onslaught of back-to-school goods. I made it just in time. Just barely.
I'm sure most of you have a picture from your childhood where you're just in a diaper in a kiddie pool. I couldn't let The Boss go through life without the same. When she has friends over, we put on a nice show with swim suits and all, but most of the time I just plop her in a swim diaper. Ever since we blew this thing up, she's been in it every chance she gets. Seriously, an eight dollar pool, a bucket, a few cups, and we have hours and hours of priceless fun. Sometimes I get pretty close to counting it as a bath!
With summer also comes ice cream novelties. I didn't even know they still made these!
As you can also see, the fake Crocs (we call them Mocs) are working out OK now and she chooses these shoes most of the time.
Sadly, she takes after her mother. This is why we invest heavily in Stain Stick.
Look what else we were able to do for the first time. A pony tail!
The amount of wrangling it required doesn't lure me into doing this daily. I'm pretty sure we'll transition to The Dorothy Hamill any day now. I kid. Well, maybe not.
Stay cool! Recipes and knitting coming soon but til then, I have to go fetch a beach ball.
