Me, Daddy, Toddler and Baby went to Alton Towers at the weekend. This was the first 5 minutes in the waterpark with two children under 4!
Me: Do not go anywhere without Mummy or Daddy ok?
Toddler: Ok Mummy.
Me (to Daddy): Right, shall we get them in the toddler pool it’ll be warm, I think?
Daddy: Yep, let’s go.
Me (to Daddy about Baby): Do you think he’s warm enough?
Daddy: Yes, he’s fine.
Me: But he looks a bit cold.
Daddy: But he feels warm, he’s fine.
Me: Where is she?
Daddy: She’s right there, I’m keeping an eye on her.
Me: I don’t like her going in on her own.
Daddy: She’s got armbands on, she’s fine.
Me: She’s going into the deep end.
Daddy: It’s the toddler pool, there’s no deep end.
Me: Do you think he’s (baby) too hot?
Me: But he looks hot, it’s really hot in here, he’s got a full body costume on, I should’ve got baby trunks. Oh God, did you put his swimming nappy on?
Me: Are you sure?
Me: Where is she, I can’t see her – oh there she is.
Daddy: I’ll take her on a slide.
Me: Be careful, you’ll need go on with her and keep her legs in, and lift her up when you get to the bottom. Are her arms bands tight enough?
Me: I think he’s getting cold… Where’s she gone now? Oh God, where is she?
Daddy: She’s right there playing with the buckets.
Me: Do you think she’s warm enough?
Me: DON’T RUN! IF YOU RUN YOU’LL SLIP AND HURT YOURSELF OKAY?
Me: His skin is getting all wrinkly I think I’ll take him out for a bit.
Daddy: He’s fine, he’s only been in the water for 5 minutes.
Me: He’s cold, I’ll get him wrapped up in a towel. Where is she? I can’t see her, oh there she is.
Daddy: I’m taking her on a slide.
Me: Ok, be careful.
