Entertaining the kids during summer break

Guest post written by Caty Michaels

I think that everyone can agree that this summer is already quite a scorcher. But just try and explain that to my kids who I can barely get to come indoors at the end of the day. They just want to stay outside and play all the time, no matter how hot it is. But I guess that they're just taking advantage of being out of school in the meantime.

So I've been trying to find ways to cool them down if they insist on staying outside. I was online getting some ideas the other day when I saw the website and changed over our internet service to it.

I went out and bought a kiddie pool and I think that I ended up sitting in it more than my kids did. It just might be an excellent way to keep an eye on my kids this summer while cooling off myself. My husband thought it was so funny when he got home and saw me sitting in the middle of the kiddie pool by myself reading a book.


  1. I love that! I've often thought I should get one for that same reason! You should have had a kid take a picture for us, next time!


  2. I love the kiddie pool .... I can just sit there and lounge and don't have to worry about swimming or moving around, I can even take a book and just relax... I know I'm a dork.. BUT as a mom of 3... that's luxury if they let me sit in the kiddie pool with a book for 10 min...hahah
