Swimming in January...who gave him that idea?

So this morning as I was listening to the radio and hearing the weather report that the temperature would be dropping all day with wind chills expected to be in the negatives the next couple of days I started to talk to Dalton about warmer days.

Me: I can't wait for spring and summer.

D: Why?

M: Cause we get to play outside and go for walks and other fun stuff

D: What else?

M: BBQ...ride bikes...go fishing and camping

D: What else?

M: Go Swimming...

D: I want to go swimming now.

M: We can't it's too cold outside...come on get dressed time for school.

D: But I want to go swimming.

M: Maybe if you're good and don't have any accidents we can go to the indoor pool.

Pull into daycare parking lot and the crying starts...

D: I want to go swimming

M: Well don't have any accidents today and no time outs and we'll go swimming tonight.

Did I mention it should be like 15 degrees when I get off work. I'm really hoping there is at least one time out today...or he forgets he wants to go swimming.

I used to go to the community swimming pool to take my swimming lessons. I must say the trainers there are very professional and friendly.

Luckily we're still waiting on that perfect day!!! At least this weekend it's supposed to be in the 40's so maybe he'll have a good day tomorrow...

Oh Shit! That means I'd have to wear a swim suit!

Looks like I'll be swimming this weekend :) Yay Me! Not to self. Think before you open your mouth and says something to a 3 year old who remembers everything these days.
