Friends Come From All Over

A few years ago we noticed that children rarely came around to play with our daughter most of the time.  This was because they all seemed to have other things to do, or couldn’t come over to play.  When we had our swimming pool put in we saw a big turn around in that.  Now children that hardly ever come around when the pool is closed come around now that the pool is open.  We don’t mind the kids coming over to swim.  We sometimes would like a parent to come over with their kids so that we aren’t the only ones watching them.  We don’t like to discipline other peoples kids, and that’s another reason.  When the kids come over we always sit outside on the patio chairs by the pool so that we are sure that nothing happens to anyone. 

Has anyone else ever noticed this?  Do you mind that this happens?

  1. We spend the first twelve months of our children’s lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up

  2. I doubt if I would extend the hospitality of the pool to kids who only come round come summer uif they have avoided the house all year.
