Stories on Kathryn and Brad

Kathryn has played out in the pool everyday this week, so it really should not have surprised me when she brought me over two of her "pool toys", threw them in my lap, and grunted. I gave them back to her, and she proceeded to give them back to me, this time with a little bit more annoyed grunt. Finally I asked her if she wanted to go outside. She started jabbering and waving her arms hysterically, walked as fast as her little legs would carry her over to the back door, then turned around and looked at me like, "what's taking so long, Mom?!?" My little puppy dog!!! Of course, once she gets in the pool, her favorite thing to do is throw stuff out of the pool and see how far she can reach. If it is not enough of a challenge, she will throw it a little farther out until she can't reach it anymore, then grunts for me to get it for her. Her favorite pool toy is the nasal aspirator (a clean one, of course :o). She loves how I can fill it up with water and squirt her with it. Unfortunately, once I start this game, I have no choice but to do it for the rest of the time that we're in the pool.

Kathryn's new hobby is re-arranging. She will pick up little things from all over the house and move them to "better" locations (mostly just putting small things in containers and such). I told Brad if she were a squirrel, and our floor were dirt, we would have oak trees growing all over the place. Anyway, I'm usually the one who finds her creations, mostly because she hides things in the pots and pans, tupperware containers, or baskets. Last night I asked Brad if he would empty out the rest of the twelve pack of Coke that was in the pantry into the fridge. When he got to the bottom, there was something rattling. The look on his face was priceless. His hands were moving fast, and he looked up at me and said, "Honey! I think we actually won something!!!" Then he pulled out a big Disney World collector's medallion. I know it's never as funny when you're not there, but it was a truly classic moment... Especially for those of you who know Brad :o).

"for the rest of the time that we're in the pool."

So, did my telling on my sweet wife's pool playtime convince you to dive in?
