Why on earth has it been damn near impossible to find a plastic splash pool for my freaking patio? Our neighborhood boasts a kiddie pool complete with water falls, etc and a “adult” pool but for some odd reason the kiddie pool is sub-artic year round even though we live in Florida and the average temperature here is Satan’s balls. The bigger pool usually warms up a bit more but there is no way I’m going to attempt the lunacy that is trying to wrangle an 8 month old and a 2 year old during the day without backup.
So I decide that I want to pick the girls up a cheap little plastic pool for the patio. Enough to cool off a bit, but not require the use of my CRV to transport all the gear necessary just to venture 6 blocks down to our neighborhood pool.
I started my search on Amazon after Target failed me, since we’re all about Prime and the free 2 day shipping and anything that keeps me from having to actually put on pants to get is ok by me. In this case, Amazon didn’t have anything that wasn’t inflatable which is a no go as we have 2 big dogs that have the combined IQ of a Tic Tac and would puncture it before it was even filled.
Toys R Us had it listed online as available in store, so I put pants on and headed out to pick this up 8 dollar bad boy. This was my first trip to Toys R Us in years as we mostly get items from Amazon and Target (along with my bargain hunting abilities) and with the plastic smell, bright lights, and confusing set up, I can promise you it will be my last. I literally wandered about 40 min before someone asked if they could help and then when they pointed the selection of wading pools, they only had 2 gigantic ones with slides that would fit in the back of my faux SUV (aka my little CRV) only if somebody would invent a damn shrink ray already. The two smaller ones were out of stock and the cashier swore to me that she had seen them at Walmart.

I am looking forward to having children. lol Kiddie pools!!! As long as you have kids, you don't seem so silly sitting in 4 inches of water in a big blue plastic pool. lmao
Do you think I could get away with a tower fan in the baby's room? I wanted to get an oscillating fan for the room for air circulation, would the tower be as effective?
And drink LOTs of water momma. It helps with the swelling. That and cranberry juice. It's only going to get hotter now. BLAH
