We have an inflatable kiddie pool for our backyard. The first time I wanted to use it I could not get our air pump to work. I had to blow it up using my own breath power. Let’s just say I vowed never to do that again.
Since then I have made Nathan inflate the pool because he could make the air pump work. This week is a warm one here and I really wanted to pool inflated so that the boys could play. I told Nathan I wanted the pool and his response was, “I don’t know what to tell you, hon. It’s really easy.”
So…I went to use the air pump and could not make the darn thing work. I’ll admit I may have shed a couple “frustration” tears and a few “feeling inadequate” tears. However, when Nathan got home from work he tried and could not get the air pump to work either. While I am sad about the pool remaining un-inflated, it made me feel better.
All this to preface some fun afternoon activities with the boys today. I wanted to get outside and have some water play, but with no pool I was forced to improvise. I used a laundry basket and a sprinkler, and we had a blast.
