Fishin' in the backyard
Okay, I may have really lost it this time! My kids decided to fill up the wading pool this afternoon. I had to go to Wal-mart. Matthew says to me "wouldn't it be cool to have real fish in the pool Mom?"I laughed and said sure it would. So at Wal-mart I got to thinking and ended up bringing home 4 feeder goldfish and a little net. So my kids have been fishing in the backyard for the last hour. They take turns with the net and see how many fish they can catch before the egg timer runs out.
I know, this is really sort of gross and I honestly cannot believe I let them do this! I may have crossed that fine line between cool/fun Mom and wacko/crazy Lady!
But man they had a lot of fun--until the fish expired one by one and were then treated to an ocean cruise, as my Mother used to say.
So will you all still be my friend or am I too wacko?
