...i was mowing earlier today and the girls were playing. once i got about half the backyard mowed, i set up the sprinkler and let the girls run through it. they were in swimsuits and slathered with sunscreen.
as i continued to mow, they yelped and hooted and hollered and enjoyed the cool water. they even filled up the watering can and their empty gatorade bottles to water the backyard flowers (we have tiger lillies just about to bloom that they are anxiously waiting for...).
and then it happened.
in my peripheral i saw linnea standing in an odd position. i shut off the mower just in time to hear her giggling voice shout to her sister:
"LOOK AT ME! I PEE IN THE YARD LIKE OUR DOG!"
pride just welled up in me.
