Finally. It’s here. No more snowsuits. No more hats and mitts. No more boots. It’s all bare feet and sunscreen from here on out.
It’s been BEAUTIFUL here lately. And on one of the many awesome days we’ve been having lately, we broke out the old sprinkler. It is always a hit. It’s the great equalizer. No one, regardless of their age, gender, race, or creed can deny that the splash of a sprinkler on your feet on a super hot day makes you giddy.
My kiddles happen to agree.
Now. There are a couple of rules that apply to all sprinkler related fun. I swear, these rules were around when I was a kid, and as a cognitive adult, I see these same things happening in every single sprinkler session. In no particular order, they are as follows.
Rule #1 – Screaming: Mandatory
Rule #2 – Water Must Migrate
Rule #3 – Locate the Nearest Mud Puddle. Splash.
Rule #4 – Take Breaks
Rule #5 – Do Weird Dances That Involve Placing Rear End in Water Flow
Rule #6 – Hide the Detonator From the One-Year-Old!!
Okay, that last one doesn’t apply to every sprinkler party, but it was too awesome to pass up.
Anyway, I hope this amazing weather is finding it’s way to your neck of the woods! Enjoy your sprinkler time while it’s here. And seriously…don’t let your 1-year-old man a detonator.
