159Days #207 Water Fun
What better way to beat the heat than a game of splash in a hot tub set at 95 degrees. Great fun was had. Yes, Hubs and I went in also, but figured it best to get a cell phone photo first and put the phone down away from any big splashes. One of the perks of being a grandparent is you don’t have to be the “adult,” you get to be a kid again, act silly and have fun.
A simple truth we learned after worrying about so many things when our kids were growing up is that kids come from all kinds of families that included very strict parents and lenient parents, bad parenting and good parenting, and homes with little parental involvement to those whose parents smothered them. It didn’t seem to matter, they all turned into pretty great adults.
So we all stayed, played, splashed and sang until we were water-logged and wrinkly like a prune. If you are still in the parenting years, go ahead and have as much fun with your kids as your grandparents had with you.
