Every year we buy a fancy posh paddling pool and vow to keep it immaculate but we are quite frankly rubbish. And every winter I remember my vow, whilst scraping off stagnant water pools, leaves, twigs and probably the odd frog or two, and realise that yes I’m back at square one.
This year we have been a little slow on the uptake and only bought one last Sunday (it was only £5 instead of £10 so this is the way forward – letting it go to rack and ruin bargain style!) and of course, it proceeded to rain. So Thursday the sun finally graced is with its presence and I learnt two things:
- My daughters LOVE water and will stay in the paddling poorly for hours and even when they start looking a shade of blue they will not want to leave
- My son begs and begs for it to be blown up (puffing hell!) and will moan he’s cold after about 90 seconds
All jokes aside, we have had such a lovely couple of days. I absolutely love them being able to be outdoors and having such fun. It’s so simple that a bit of water can give them SO much fun but long may it reign!
It’s absolutely to see how much the girls are really starting to interact and play with each other. They make up their own little games and sit laughing at each other. From the outside looking in – twin life looks pretty awesome! They have a permanent playmate whom they absolutely adore and to see their friendship and relationship blossoming is truly amazing and it has made me realise how blessed I really am to have twins as I don’t know any other twins so every thing they do is a revelation.
