Many of you have heard this story...
The last time the Fritchman's were here Amy was giving the boys a bath in my great big tub. They love that thing. I decided it would be fun to reminisce about how I used to bathe my younguns. I would kick off my shoes and roll up my pants and put my feet in the tub, better leverage. Well, the boys thought that was great fun and decided to up the ante. Eli chided me to get in with them. I thought about it for about half a second and slid in, clothes and all! Then, of course, they wanted me to go under and I did. We splashed about half the water out onto the floor and had a big old time. Amy probably thought I'd lost it.
My point is this: I can't remember doing anything so foolish when mine were little. And I wish I had.
Now that I ponder it, Amy probably didn't think a thing because she strikes me as that kind of mom. The kind who throws caution to the wind to be zany. While we can.
It did, however, destroy my cell phone which was in my back pocket. I got a better one.
