It's been pretty warm here lately, with high temperatures similar to those experienced in the middle of August in the Midwest (just to give you Northerners a point of reference). Will asked me the other day if fall would arrive soon, as he was getting tired of summer, and he didn't take it well when I broke it to him that we were only a couple of weeks into SPRING.
That being said, Will and Hallie are usually pretty good at dealing with the heat. They keep their water or Gatorade bottles with them and drink frequently, they know how to turn on the hose to splash a little water on their faces, and they move their games to the shade of the tree or onto the covered patio if the sun becomes too hot. And when that isn't enough, they do this:
While cooking dinner one evening I looked up and saw Hallie's naked little butt pressed up against the back door. When I asked her what she was doing, she said, "I peed so I just being buck naked now".
After a lengthy search I found her wet underwear and shorts - along with her t-shirt, socks, and shoes - in a pile in the shed. And when I asked her if she wanted to put clean clothes on, she replied, "But Mama, it's SO hot outside! I just stay buck naked." Apparently it's already too hot to wear even underwear.
Love this post, but one small pronunciation note I want to be sure to remember: Hallie likes being "buck naded"ReplyDelete
