slip & slide

NO! You may NOT pour buckets of water in the upstairs hallway and use the hallway as a slip and slide.

And if you do, and you get your sister involved, and you don't get caught, you may want to coach that sister to NOT coming running to mom & dad to tell mom & dad how fun it was, because right at that very moment that she speaks, the fun is over. OVER.

GRRRRRrrrrrr.

Not to mention that children are not allowed to wash the living-room sofa with huge buckets of water (maybe 10 or 12) while mom is cooking dinner (your children and mine seem to have a lot in common in terms of exercising their creativity and household skills !).

That is creative. I bet is was fun to clean up. We had our first toy in the toilet flood yesterday. Oh joy. Looks like more to come.

My brother BABY OILED the stone, bathroom floor when he as little and had a GREAT time sliding the length of the bathroom and then crashing into the tub.

Can you imagine cleaning that up? Oi.

To encourage you for the future, my husband and his best friend/next door neighbor are famous within the family for having once held a water fight that began in the front yard, continued THOUGH THE HOUSE, via hoses and buckets, and ended up in the back yard. The encouragment part is that my husband is now a sober and responsible (mostly) doctor, and his best friend is a sober and responsible (ahem) personal trainer who is entering physical therapy school.

AND their Christmas gift to their mother two years ago was to replace her carpet, on the strength of the idea that they were mostly responsible for its sad state. Courage! kristin

Oh my! Reminds me of some of the interesting things I did as a child. The oil comment spurred a memory of me and the neighbor girl painting my dad's car with motor oil...
