New baby pool.
Green with ducks, hard-sided with a built in slide.
Filled and waiting for napping boys to come play.
Their new found freedom to splash, scream and laugh.
And their contagious energy.
The smell of the garden hose, grass and warm dusk.
Wrapping them in fluffy towels and heading in to eat breakfast for dinner.
Excited dinner chatter as we talk about playing again tomorrow.
Goodnight kisses and more promises that yes, we will play in the pool tomorrow.
I want to be a child again…
