Don't Tell the Kids

  
Between my kids and the grandkids, our pool is not a safe place to swim.  Any adult foolish enough to enter the water is jumped on, splashed, hung on and generally harassed.  Which is why I spend most days sitting in a chair poolside, reading a book and pretending I'm watching every "look Mom".
  But there's a time, very early in the morning - 6:30 - that Kirsten and I have it all to ourselves.  We walk a mile and then toss the shoes and slip into the beautiful, peaceful, un-kid-inhabited pool.  The sun is just peaking through he trees and we swim our laps and talk and it's the best part of my day.
