Sometimes I wish we had a pool. The kids are always asking to use the hose on the trampoline. It's so hot and they just want to get wet. I feel like the mean mom when I look at their sweaty Arizona faces and say it's such a waste of water.
"Best Mom ever!" Those are the words I heard when I appeared in the backyard with a bucket full of water balloons. Success! When the fun was over, three buckets full later, it was a easy clean-up since all the little pieces were on the trampoline.
