Bugg in summer

 Bugg knows he'll get a reaction
if he blows razzberries.
So hilarious.

 Summer was always my favorite season as a kid.
We were big time water lovers,
going waterskiing at the lake weekly,
swimming and bbq's at the pool, Water World adventures.
Plus, I have a July birthday so bonus!
And my girls just loooove the water, too.
I remember going to the big water park a few years ago.
I had only 3 kids, I got this, right?
Well, Wyatt needs all my arms in the water
so quickly I saw that it wasn't going to work.
But I bend into ridiculous pretzel shapes to make summer fun & "normal" for the girls
so dang it, we're doing this!
With a 5 year old and a toddler to look after and follow, no, no, this was
definitely not going to work.
So what happened?
I sat down and bawled my eyes out.
Sobbed.  Felt sorry for myself and my kids.
But I learned a lot that day.
There's limits to what I can do and it's okay.
So now I get a sitter or wait til the Hunk can come along.
Bugg gets to go to summer school for a few days a week.
We take advantage of that time to boot.
 Or we find other things we can do together
like these blessed trampoline parks that are popping up all over.
Genius.  (In fact, where were those when I was young?  'Cause now this white girl can't jump.
Holla, all you mama's out there.)
Indoors safe from heat, contained area so I can eyeball all the girls, A/C, crazy fun for all, 
including Bugg.
He loves to jump, supported of course.
Or lay down and we gently bounce him.
He gets hysterical!  It's so awesome.

Cheers to summer!
