One thing I love about Summer....running, swimming, and playing outside has a great effect on rambunctious toddlers:
A couple of days ago, I bought Addison a new pool! She loved "shwimmin' like a mamaid" (swimming like a mermaid) for hours. Ryan may have even got a little pool time in. He didn't look ridiculous at all sitting in this tiny pool with bath toys! He is such a cute dad!
Sometimes it doesn't bother me. I don't mind him playing with Addie once in a while. However, his parents have discovered that as long as we are outside, they have a free babysitter. It bugs me that I feel like I can never just relax outside with my daughter. The worst part is that it isn't even just when Addison is outside. I have gone out by myself to read in the sun, or to talk on the phone...and guess who creeps his way over to stand right beside my chair and look over my shoulder?
Am I being a brat? Probably. He probably is just a lonely boy that doesn't get much attention at home. But it still gets on my nerves every once in a while.
