If you can’t beat them, join them...

So, I was seriously about to lose it. 

I asked Benton, who was wielding the hose and spraying water in every direction, to stop and turn the water off.  I must have said it 10 times.  And then, I thought “why do I really care?”  The answer was mostly because of city water restrictions. Bummer. 

It is nearly 90 degrees out and kids aren’t allowed to play in the sprinkler? 

So, for the sake of my sanity and my blood pressure, I thought, “whatever” and convinced Benton to pause long enough so that I could attached the sprinkler.    They spent the next 1/2 hour running around and through the sprinkler.

Now, we’re back in the house, watching Curious George.  We going to go to the pet store in a bit, but I needed a moment (30 minutes) of quiet. 

Oh, Birdie (the puppy) does not like this hot weather at all.  She is more than willing to hang out in the house all day.  She is going to love Alaska though.  Birdie is my kind of dog.
