Life in a Crocodile
July 12th, 2011
These days, I spend most afternoons lounging in a three-foot-wide inflatable crocodile kiddie pool.
Miss Mouse vascillates between loving the crocodile pool and being totally unimpressed. Some days she’s content to dip out endless watering cans of pool water to sprinkle on things: her swing set, the weeds, the dog, etc. Some days, she wants to see if her brother can breathe underwater (note: he cannot) and thus I serve as a human barricade between them.
For his part, Buggie loves everything about the pool. He likes splashing, and kicking, and sticking his face in the water, and trying to climb out over the sides. He’s intrepid, that one.
