As we’ve had hot weather of late, the kids have been enjoying splashing about in their paddling pool together. J & E love nothing more than to squirt and to splash each other until their screams are so shrill that I have to remind them that we have neighbours!
Whilst the kids are busy soaking one and other, I meanwhile tend to sit back on the sunlounger, well away from the bedlam thus avoiding being splashed or god forbid, getting wet.
To say that we’ve been stuck in lockdown for twelve weeks or more and the kids have a four-year age gap, the kids have flabbergasted me with how well they have coped and have got along together. J & E sure are pool pals and I’m so proud of their patience, understanding, and progress throughout what has been an incredibly testing time.
