That's My Boy!

Now...What do you suppose he is thinking?

One afternoon a week or so ago, I asked Cade's mama to drop him by for an hour or so on her way home from work. I hadn't visited with him in a few days, and was ready to spend some time with him.
Even though Cade and his mama had been at preschool all day, Cade was still clean and fresh looking--like always-- when he got to our house. Of course, that didn't last long!
Cade's first stop was the sandbox. He loves playing in the sand. He even took a bite of it the other day...he wasn't impressed with the taste at all. We laughed and gave him something to drink!
After checking out the sandbox for a bit, Cade noticed something new...
Madison had just gotten a new swimming pool the day before. It was half full of water...and you know how water is like a magnet for little boys.
Of course being the little boy that he is--Cade had to throw an object into the pool. The problem came when he decided to try to retrieve that object. As Cade leaned in toward the pool, the side began to collapse...and the water began to flow...then Cade got all wet--shoes and all!
I only had the little fellow for an hour and he managed to get wet and dirty...I had to take him home wearing only a diaper...Then I had to explain to his mother what happened to him...What can I say, except "That's my boy!"

And I'd say- That's a gramma! LOL I usually end up washing whatever clothes they come in before sending them home. Isn't it amazing that water and dirt attract EVERY kid?
