I have lowered my Type A tendencies.
I no longer am controlled by the urge to make sure every toy we own gets put in the swim bag when we leave the pool.
It is a chore to track down all the toys. Sometimes parents have to take toys from other little kids in the baby pool area since we share toys with everyone.
I finally have given up collecting our toys. Some toys we never see again.
The liberation from the 'toy collection' routine has taken a toll on my toy stash in my swim bag.
There aren't many toys left in the bag now.
This would be a new toy I bought yesterday for Grant to play with in the pool.
This would be the matching toy I bought for Grace.
tightly wrapped around the propeller of the toy.
Notice the hair is no longer attached to Grace's head.
I almost joined her out of sympathy.
The toys are going into the trash can.
I am headed back to Target to find some more non-hair-pulling-tear-causing pool toys.
