The Expert and I decided to spend Mother’s Day at Lifetime Fitness – squeezing in a swim while the kids were in the play center, and then getting the kids and splishy-splashy with them in the pool. I am somewhere around 600m, when I see someone wander to the pool deck, carrying a small dry erase board with my name in all caps. The signal from the childcare center.
Me: Oh, no! What’s wrong?
Childcare Person: Your daughter has taken off her clothes and we can’t put them back on her.
CP: Well, because we are not a certified daycare, we can’t. We tried to get her brother to do it, but he refused.
I roll my eyes at the last sentence. As if James, our three year old, would be of any help.
We dry off and head to the childcare room. There, I see our two year old daughter, fully clothed. But then I check her, and she has clearly removed her diaper (and placed it Lord knows where) and then put her skirt back on. James runs up to me, tattling on her: “Stella took her diaper off!”
Well, there goes my swim. At least we still managed to get in a little splishy-splashy.
Happy Mother’s Day to all my SBM friends.
