Now what do you do when your 3 year old comes to you and asks if she can go swimming in “Uncle Jim’s” Pool in the middle of Winter? Well here is the little conversation that Olivia and I had yesterday morning:
Olivia: Can I go swimming in Uncle Jim’s Pool now?
Me: No, it’s closed for the winter but you can go when he opens it back up.
Olivia: well I want to go now, how about my pool, can I go in that at home?
Me: No! IT’s too cold outside to do that! And second your pool had a big hole in it so you can’t!
It’s in the trash now.
Olivia: Well then why can’t we bring a pool inside the house?
Me: Because their’s not enough room in here.
Me: Because I said so!
Olivia: THen I want to go to my swim lesson now.
Me: You’re not taking swim lessons now, and we don’t have a membership to go swimming at anytime anyways.
Me: How about this sweetie. Why don’t I let you go swimming in the bathtub with your bathing suit on?
Olivia: Thanks Mommy! I love you! Your my best friend!
Me: Your Welcome.
So Here are the pictures below of her in the bathtub with her bathing suit on and having a blast!!!
