I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire!

Happy Water Weekend

The weekend passed quickly, but this time Robby didn't complain. He is officially on summer vacation which means that the day of the week is irrelevant. Scott still has a few more days to go before he puts this school year to bed, but soon he will join Robby in vacation bliss.  If this past weekend was any indicator, our summer is going to be awesome.

Saturday afternoon we took the boys to play in water fountains in a nearby shopping center. Timmy followed Robby around like a shadow, mimicking every move. I found it adorable; Robby wasn't nearly as impressed with his little copycat. We tried to convince him that copying is the highest form of flattery, but he wasn't convinced.

With the temperature in the mid 90's, Sunday we headed to the pool. The water was a tinge warmer than last week, but it was still too chilly for Scott to submerge. He was happy sitting in the shade, watching us splash and play. Timmy hopped between the baby pool and the "big kid" pool. I know that he will be in the big pool most of the time when the water warms a bit, but he gravitated towards the baby pool which was considerably warmer. (He is much like his Daddy when it comes to disdain for cold water.)

Today we will probably hit the pool again, although it will be significantly more stressful because I will be flying solo. Scott has to attend graduation tonight, so I will be alone with the boys. Hopefully the pool water continues to warm so we can all be in the same pool.  If not, I will be scoring Robby's cannon ball dives from a distance.
