Summertime dilemma

So now that it's warm enough to take the kids to the pool. (hehe, I DO MEAN SWIM FOR YOUR INFORMATION!) I have this issue, tell me if you have the same problem. You swim for an hour or three, and then come home. Have you noticed with kids is a challenge with all the stuff you have to lug around with you, anyways I digress. By the time you come home the kids are tired and you are tired. It's really the best time for a nap but you know you should put them in the bath for at least a rinse. If you do- there goes the nap! Aahh. I choose the nap, maybe the bath will come after.

Bath after all the way...chlorine kills stuff!

Nap of course.
Some of the best zzzz's come after swimming and a lot of sun.

I did it all the time with you kids, and it never hurt you guys....well, except for Alicia's green hair....oops.

I must be a horrible mother.:) I never rinse the chlorine off my kids after swimming. They seem to fine though....you know us we live at the pool during the summer.

I would love to have that problem, but that means Molly would have to actually get IN the water! Right now she'd much rather just watch everyone else from the steps...

I was kidding by the way, I have a very clean child.

Never sacrifice an opportunity for a good nap! Naps all the way, then shower later. Lots of pools have a rinse off shower there, maybe yours does? Then your good to go.

I forgot to mention that I've only been at PRIVATE pools, I will however use the rinse off option shower at the pool.
