Water Play

I got to sit and watch four teenage boys (two of them my own) play in a pool this afternoon.  It's like they're aliens to me or something as the way they "play" is so very different than how I played as a young girl.

Me as a kid:

- under water tea parties
- handstands
- cannonballs
- diving for quarters
- the occasional reluctant game of chicken

Them today:

- throwing each other
- wrestling
- breath holding contests
- racing across the pool
- crazy dive contests
- shooting each other with water guns

Me:  "Why don't you guys have an under water tea party?"

Them:  "OK."

...and they did!  Way to class up water play, boys!

Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
