Return of Aqua Man!

I know, I know, I haven't been the greatest updater lately.  It doesn't make you want to cry like this does it?...

I should hope not.  However, having to come inside after swimming might make you cry. One day last week, little man ran to the neighbors house and decided to climb in their pool before I could stop him. Do you know how fast this kid is?! I tried to prevent him from getting completely wet since he wasn't exactly dressed for swimming.  The neighbor (not the one who owns the pool, but who's keeping track?) said I should just let him get in, so I did (we have really nice neighbors).

When it was time to come inside, Elijah was just a LITTLE bit upset.  Who needs to eat lunch, when there's a swimming pool just across the street? Hmmm?  He is drenched in these photos.  His diaper was huge.  Like I said, he wasn't exactly dressed for swimming.

I think it's time to set up Elijah's pool in our yard.  Let's be honest, I haven't set it up yet because I know he'll want to get in it every time we go outside.  Every.single.time.  Seriously.  There would be no playing with anything else.  Just swimming all the time...which is probably what most kids are doing during the summer, right?  I'd better suck it up and be prepared to be wet for the rest of the season.  Not that we haven't been playing in the water a lot anyway....or 'sneaking' over to the neighbor's house to try to get in their pool.
So, Aqua Man has officially returned (wow, that link gives me some major nostalgia). This week, I'll try to write out a few updates that are floating around in my head.  Oh, and I have awesome pictures of Aqua Man playing in the water that I'll post sometime soon.  Seriously, I will.  You'll hold me to it, won't you? ;)

Water play is sooo good for kids. If you get a chance, read K, floortimeliteMomma's recent post: http://drycappucino.blogspot.com/

Her son is autistic but she does a great job of describing the benefits of water play.
