Because we live a pretty good distance from a city library, museums, parks, etc, there's not much to do close to our house. Plus it is blazing hot in the summer so activities are limited to pretty much indoors. So, we go swimming at the Y a few days a week. I work out while the kids go in the play place and then we all swim together. Sometimes the boys are so crazy in our little stall while we try to eat our snack and change into our swim suits. It probably seems extra crazy because I am usually tired from my workout. But, on this day, they were exceptionally good.
It seems like every time I go another mother comments on how I am brave for bringing all 3 boys to swim. It is quite a circus sometimes, but I don't want to live my life barricaded in my house because I have 3 children ages 4 and under. And sometimes we do make a scene, but all kids do.
