The Town Pool
I have officially lost the race for "Mother of the Year", yet again. Not until I picked OG and EJ up from the town pool this afternoon did I realize that this was EJ's very first visit to a community swimming pool. Until today, he's always swam in private or hotel pools.
Still waiting on EJ to emerge from the boy's dressing/shower room, OG hopped into the truck.
Giggling she said, "EJ is so funny. When we arrived he started to undress right in boys' side hallway near the front door. I asked him, what are you doing?" He replied, "I'm putting on my swim clothes." "I told him he needed to go around the corner to do that."
Next, as we were driving home EJ recounts his dressing/shower room experience as he's leaving the pool. He says, "Yeah, right after I got naked and was showering - why don't they have curtains or doors on the showers? - Gavin walked in and saw me and you should have seen the look on his face!"
OOPs! I've failed to inform my son that the town pool showers are to rinse off your swim clothes BEFORE and AFTER swimming. Not to actually shower and wash your hair. After, explaining the PROPER use of the town pool showers room, EJ responds with, "OH! that's why there wasn't any soap or shampoo in there."
I suppose, since he is the caboose, I tend to assume he just knows certain things - like how to use the town pool.
Abundant blessings to you ... Mrs. B, a very peculiar person
