I Hate It When That Happens

Last week I suggested to the Mr that we put sand in the space below the kids' swing set.  He put his foot down and flat out refused! 

So this weekend while he was putting sand under the swing set *hee hee hee* he was ranting about how I was going to regret it and within a few weeks he'd be decking over this brilliant idea of mine.  I, being as stubborn confident as I am, knew better.

Cut to 28.6 seconds after the boys started playing in it...

Me: "You're gonna have to go get some decking and cover that shit up!"
Mr:  *intense death glare*

I also wanted to buy a hard plastic kiddie pool the boys could splash around in and keep cool this summer since I'm probably not taking them to a public pool and the best they can hope for is a creek down in Arkansas.  The Mr claimed it was a terrible idea and I was just trying to make a huge mess of the back yard and the house.  I ignored him took his objections into consideration and bought a kiddie pool today.  Surely he can't be right twice in a row.

I love your blogs new look:)

You had me cracking up today.

I have done the same thing.... thinking I knew better... but like always I was wrong. And even after ur post, I still want some sand, LOL. I saw some really cool rubber mulch at a play-ground one time, and think if I ever can afford a swing-set I will use that under it.

Anyway, good luck with the pool. Hope you can prove the hubs wrong this time, LOL... At least you can always just empty it and put it away.

Let me know how much you are selling the pool for, my dogs might like to play in it... TeeHee!
You know damn well they are gonna make mud and track it into the house every 5 minutes to get something to eat, something to drink, to go to the bathroom, to get something to play in the pool with, to get a towel.... yada, yada, yada.
But don't you dare let SB know that he was right twice in one week, he will NEVER let you live it down. Just teach the kids how to wash the floor. (Oh, and I KNOW they know how to pee outside, so that eliminates one trip inside.)

Oh the joys of sand. We have a huge sandbox under our tree house... Which translates to me constantly cleaning it out of our carpets... but whatever.

Just tell him the kids can wash the sand off in the kiddie pool!
