Summer Days, Drifting Away …

We’ve been having some marvellous weather here. It has been a little too much on the hot and dry side of the equation for the plants but beautiful for any humans wanting to go outside. There has been a nice balance of humidity and lack of humidity days as well for, as you know, I do not like humidity. At. All.

On the humid days when I’m melting in my house, I really feel bad for Iain. By and large, he’s wearing a big diaper around and, even if that’s all he’s wearing, the child has got to be warm. Therefore, some days there is only one thing to do.

Go outside on the deck.

Have dishpan and water toys primed.

Grease said child down with sunscreen (or, better yet, put him in a sunsuit).

Let him at it.

Pray he is occupied long enough for me to sew up his sweater…

Oh Iain - when you've got it flaunt it. I just want to blow a big fat raspberry in that belly roll. Thppppttthp! Such a cutie.

What a FABULOUS idea! Ethan would love to play in the dishpan like that. You are a genius!

Iain is adorable! I cannot believe how big he is getting. It makes me sad to see our babies growing up so quickly.
