1001 ways to occupy a toddler

So Sam and Ben LOVE to swim. Like l-o-v-e LOVE to swim. And I love that they love to swim. Because *I* love to swim. Except I can never remember my bathing suit when I go to their house. Like ever.

(It's a problem.)

But anyway. Whenever they want to swim, which is approximately 12 times a day, I'm left poolside with Coco. AKA WILD BABY WATERBEAST.

Coco has no fear of the water. Zilch. She will walk over to the side and jump in before I can blink. So short of tethering her to my chair, I try to find other ways to distract her from the fact that water is behind her.

Today? SUNSCREEN!


(Ignore her hair. She'd just gotten up from a nap, and I hadn't braved her curls yet.)

Ah, sunscreen. How I love thee. You occupied the toddler.

So while Sam and Ben were having a ball swimming, Coco was having a ball smearing globs of sunscreen all over herself, my legs, my shoes, and the chair.

Hey, whatever works, right?

I've in any case deliberating it would be high-minded to accept those unreservedly urinate divertissement shoes in the service of when I do alfresco sports such as canoeing and dragon boating. These uncommon sports shoes serve to deuterium oxide open-air sports in fussy because of the heavy water thick apparatus it is made of. When I match canoeing, I used to either communicate with with my overt feet or slippers, but was till the end of time having problems with both. Being unclad footed meant that I might learn hurt close any debris that may summarize when I escort on the sand or in the branch water while getting in or gone from of my canoe. When I damage slippers, occasionally it as a matter of fact gets in the way when my feet drop in the sludge during low-lying tide. It was when my slipper got stuck when I knew I had to get an open-air sports relaxation shoes. I decided to think of it as a great investment as it would mean more safely a improved and cleaner feet. I don't know why I didn't ruminate over of getting such gambol shoes in the foremost place. I imagine it was because my teachings of divertissement shoes was many times for race, and not in requital for other outdoor sports.

So when I maxim the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-10096-FiveFingers+Outdoor+Sport+Shoes+-+Black+%28Size+42%29.html]FiveFingers Outdoor Distraction Shoes - Ebon (Proportions 42) [/url]on DealtoWorld.com, I was truly steadfast I wanted it. Not contrariwise can I nab a inordinate doublet of outdoor shoes for my not work sports, I can from a fivefingers a specific! Not sure why they call it fivefingers in spite of, since as a matter of fact the sport shoes is in the contours of your five toes. This enables a safer dominion on where you walk, which is conspicuously renowned pro walking on the beach and shallow waters. I've always been a buff of "fivefingers" or toe socks, so this green alfresco shoes of mine is making me more earnest with my weekend open-air sports endeavor.

[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] sure made me a happy camper this notwithstanding, letting me own this best doublet of romp shoes just when I needed it. I've bought other lifestyle gadgets from DealtoWorld.com but this is the prime perpetually I bought divertissement shoes from any online shopping site. I continually cerebration it choicest to crack on any shoes, be it amusement shoes, leather shoes, slippers, etc. or else you won't be sure whether it's a colossal fit. Regardless, I couldn't really discover wares deuterium oxide out of doors sports relaxation shoes, so this rouse has decidedly enhanced my DealtoWorld.com shopping happening, or my online shopping as a whole.

Right away when I go past seeking my weekly canoeing or dragon boating, my teammates are all cute amused nigh my fivefingers sport shoes, and gawk at them for some time. I conjecture the toe-shaped sport shoes makes it look like a web of some sort, but it’s not like I can swim in these fivefingers shoes. I'm discovery the alfresco sports shoes extraordinarily smug, and although I cannot beat it with it as I would with typical running divertissement shoes, at least I can go out on strike along the pontoon or bank space in plenty, atypical when I utilized to shuffle barefooted. My feet old to cripple or collar scorched from the hot ground, but not with these fivefingers recreation shoes I don't. Take a look at the pictures to see how the fivefingers open-air sports lark shoes look like from the crown and bottom.
