Unless it's raining, we are outside, so it's hard to avoid the water because Aidan is quite convincing when it comes to needing to fill a pool...he even helps.
He belly flops, slides, and jumps in the pool. He demands that those sitting around get in the pool with him, whether there's room for 3 adults and a toddler or not. Or when mom accidentally pops his pool and he has to revert back to his baby pool. He doesn't care as long as you let him get in the pool. The only issue comes when Aidan runs outside, and you're two seconds behind him. He'll attempt to take his clothes off, but jump in the pool, and his diaper quickly swells. As a side note, he is always supervised while playing in the pool, and if a pool is filled with any water, there is always an adult outside.
As you can see in the picture on the right, not only is Aidan in the baby pool, but he also has his bug sprinkler. AJ tightened the hose, and I couldn't get the bug disconnected. So I attempted to fill his pool with the sprinkler, and then Aidan wanted to play with the bug in the pool. Can never have enough water!
<----The pool he loves to be dunked in! It has built in slide, too, which seems to be a Aidan requirement for a kid pool. He climb up the stairs, sits down, and then says "Ready, one two three, slide" Sometimes he says two twice and looks at us like he's tricking somebody.
Recently, I bought a slip and slide. Yes, I know the box says AGE 5 and up, but again, with adult supervision and help, we tried out the slip and slide. It was a hit! Aidan learned to lay on his belly,then we gave him a push down the hill. He even started his own game where he would roll his soccer ball down the slip and slide then follow it. Aidan had a blast, and let me tell ya, he wore himself out running back up the hill. No fighting bed time for Aidan!
