While I was swimming...


video

Do you ever wonder what happens when you are at swim practice and your child is in the hands of another person? Today I found out! I dropped Kainoa off at Uncle Nick's house this morning so I could swim. I never think anything of it. Nick and Kainoa are the best of buds & I totally trust Nick (I mean come on, he is also my bike mechanic and if he can keep my bike going he should be GREAT with my son). I also knew Brooke would be home in 45 minutes so she could take over from there...

Yikes! Then I see the "mystery video" Brooke took when she walked in the door! Now I know where all Kainoa's crazy habits come from...

This Cracks me up...I'm a Mom of 3 boys....
my advice..don't try to stop this stuff. It doesn't work! I'm slowly coming to grips with that.
I'm sure Kainoa had a blast!

Seems to me that Kainoa was the one being sensible! :) How fun is that for him though to have Fun Uncle Nick to play with!!

And I laughed so hard that instead of jumping like he was told to, he asked for juice! :) See... you are a good mom!

OK, really. How cool is this video?! Sure it's not necessarily what you were thinking happens when you were away BUT Uncle Nick and K were having SO MUCH FUN! At least he was asking fo juice!!! Sure he was climbing on the counter but what 2 year old doesn't?! He sure loves his Uncle Nick!!

Oh what fun! My friends daughter use to climb all over the counter til the age of 8 and sorta climb up the walls in the hallways...she turn out alright :o)

I know that video makes me cry too. I needed a little motivation yesterday.

Ah, hello, swim 6 miles with you? Youre way to fast for me. Id slow you down. Hows about a couple sprint races-50's in the pool. Ill whoop for sure. Game on?

Yessssssss! So cute! A couple more swim practices and he will have learned to jump OFF the counter too.

My heart did a big leap when i watched this! It was so much fun watching your son climb on the counters. Can I come over with my 3 kids and have Nick watch my kids? He looks like he has as much fun as a kid! I love your blog!

Kainoa is as cute as they come! Maybe this is payback from your babysitting skills back when Hayden was a baby! I would love to tell everyone the "poopy" story!
Love you- and happy you're all coming to Florida soon!
Nick you're great- can't wait to meet you!
