Maybe at Age 22...

My girlfriend and I were sitting at my pool watching the kids. She looks at me and asks
"What age do you think the boys will have to be when you don't have to come out here and watch them in the pool? 14...or 16 years old???

Right at that moment...my son does something "dare devilish" probaly a bit "dangerous"....I look at her and say "Maybe when he is 22...maybe."


I am off to the lake...around this time last year, I was there. That "trip" was the inspiration for "Shell In Your Pocket". Who knows what I could come back with~

enjoy...can't believe it's July already!

I'm with you 22 sounds good! I do love watching them swim it gets me to sit and be still for hours... any other time of year that doesn't happen much! SO I'm now loving it... just wish the food was made for me as well as all the house work so when I came in from the pool and felt sleepy I could just take a nap! hee hee

My girls are both the same way in the pool! Both fear nothing.

Have fun, can't wait to see what you might come back with!

Having the little ones around water freaks me out...I agree...22...or maybe on their honeymoon.

Try about 45. My friend's husband just fractured his heels by jumping into a pool off of a second floor balcony. He's a 30 something father of 3!

I completely agree. Boys are crazy wild dangerous!

Boys always need watching. My nest will never be empty. I tell everyone that I have 3 children because I include my husband. I will still be raising him long after Britnee and Brett are gone. Hope you are having a grand time at the lake.

Oh I am SO with you! We don't have a pool but all of the schools that the kids will be going to are right down the sreet -I tell Brian the kids will be able to drive there before they are able to walk to school alone. LOL

From a mother of a 25 year-old and a 32 year-old....probably 40!!

Hope you're having a great time at the lake! I hope you come back both rested and inspired!

Queen B. said...

Yes, with 3 boys, I KNOW 22 is about the PERFECT age. :)

Ruth said...

Have a great time at the lake. I can't wait to see what great ideas come to mind while you are there.

I think 22 is too young. LOL~Boys and men are always coming up with daring new stunts. Sometimes you just have to turn your back and not look.

My husband and his friend jumped off our roof-1 story only, thank goodness-into an inflatable bouncer. Crazy!!! I don't think it ever stops.

Boys are crazy. :) Hope you have a great trip! I'm so glad you started your blog a year ago.

Great pictures, Sandy Toe, and I can't wait to see what you come back with from the lake this year! Boys can be scary, but remember to pray angels around him to protect him. I was a scary girl because I was a tomboy (who also loved to play dress up and play with dolls). When I think of the things we got into... oh, wow! ;-)

XO,

Sheila :-)

Cheryl Wray said...

Great pictures!!!

and, yeah, 22 sounds about right. LOL Personally, I think I will worry about my girls until they're old ladies.

Hope you're having a great week!

Carrie said...

April said...
