Best Shot Monday: Pool Hair.

Hey ho for best Shot Monday!

I guess it's no surprise that we have been spending a bit of time in our pool (snake notwithstanding...he/she seems to have vanished ). In my case I don't venture out until the sun is on the other side of the house (some of you know of my problems with sun) but the kids of course are in at any opportunity. Having said that, the last few days have been too hot to walk across the paving barefoot so we have tended to leave it til later.

A couple of nights ago, I decided to forgo the joys of splashing about in an uncoordinated manner whilst fending off my loving daughter who seems determined to hang off me like a limpet whilst dragging me towards the deep end which she KNOWS I feel uncomfortable about, and sit serenely on the side of the pool taking photos/videos.

There was much "Look at me, look at me", going on.

from all parties,

but I also managed my Best Shot for the week.

We call this "Crazy Pool Hair". There are a number of versions!

Very fun! I am so, so tempted to get me and my kids on a plane/boat and crash your pool party! February is just about when I lose my patience with winter. Enjoy!

That is totally awesome! It's hard to remember that you are completely on the other side of the world and in the midst of summer right now!

I cannot even say I feel your pain at the heat right now....it's too flipping cold here! Just 3 degrees F here - WELL BELOW FREEZING - and it is cold. And I have a cold. bleh!

Awesome pool hair! Reminds me of some of the punk styles.
A pool is the place to be when it's hot, though I rarely go out in the sun either - I don't tan, I burn.

That's some nice hair! A couple of years from now you won't get away with posting silly pictures of him anymore! He'll be too cool.
I am actually dreading summer. I know I'm a weirdo, but I love winter. Plus I dread going out in my swimsuit. ugh.

See?!? Forget sunscreen - that's why I always bring my kid repellent with me to the pool. (KIDDING!!!!!! And I never forget the sunscreen. Looks like you probably try not to either! :-)

Oh & adorable picture!
