Pool days number 2, and yet it was the first pool day of the Summer season.
And it ain’t Summer yet!
And it was evening!
Blue water for days. And days and days. A balmy night, splashing, laughter, music, baby girl showing off by blowing bubbles and retrieving rings, and very good company… in fact, the best.
Yep you guessed it. My sister and bro-in-law’s place.
It was meant to be a ‘quick visit’ because it is a weeknight.
It is NEVER a quick visit.
Hours later, baby girl is requesting mini marshmallow(s) upon mini marshmallow(s), then peanut butter on bread, then tim tams… all the while we are discussing Prince, Madonna, as well as a heady dose of ‘the true meaning of life,’ and then of course the guys take a photo before our nephew exceeds us all and takes lead in the height division.
Baby girl is not shy. She is a prankster.
Then it is 11pm, and I am looking forward to a measly 4 hours sleep before my work shift tomorrow.
But sometimes, for some people, losing sleep is so worth it.
You know that line Olaf says to Anna in Frozen? She tells the funny and lovable snowman to get away from stoking the fire for her. And he responds
“some people are worth melting for.”
