The girls who brought you, “Marriage Wisdom from Preschoolers,” just celebrated their 5th & 3rd birthdays at a pool party. The pool held 6″ of water and featured a mushroom shower, Noah’s Ark slide, and a rainbow slide. I don’t know how many kids were there, but there had to be 20 of them, ranging in ages from 1-6. Upon my arrival, I was beckoned into the pool by twin #1.

A total of 5, maybe 6, adults actually got into the pool. Of course, I was one of those adults, and at one point, to help twin #2 get over her fear of the “big, big slide,” I took her down the rainbow slide on my lap. After that, she decided she could go herself.

I don’t know why, but this is the first time I’ve ever been in a bathing suit and not felt self-concious. I had a great time. 🙂

One funny moment: at the girls’ house later, after opening gifts, twin #2 asks me to help put her Rapunzel Barbie in her new tote bag because…”I’m taking her to the doctor tomorrow to get her fixed.”

I don’t know either.


I seek to live, breathe & work creatively. Late bloomer. I survived breast cancer and so much more. I will meet each challenge w/determination, badassery & sass!


  1. Barbies are incredibly fertile. That’s why Mattel makes buyers sign an agreement to get them spayed within a week of taking them from their plastic and re-animating them.
