Pool and a squirt gun

I will never understand why it is "I" that's "ME" "MYSELF" bought my boys a squirt gun.  I was temporarily out of my cotton pick'n mind, obviously!  I am sure you know by now that I have been squirted from head to toe by these sweet boys whom I gave birth to, who found great enjoyment and humor in my yelling to stop.  My daughter also has a deep rooted hate for squirting apparatuses, yelling for help in a deafening scream anytime either one of her brothers even comes near her.
We have a small hard plastic kiddy pool which I would like to stay clean so that when I am just about to burst into flames I can take a very quick dip and resume position in a chair reading a book while the boys chase each other and squirt.  But my like to stay clean request is also very funny, see the pool wasn't filled even 15 minutes before my son Bo who will 5 (I state his age because he knows better) pees in it and yells "a fountain" I do not see the humor but the oldest boy laughs his head off.  I will just have to melt!  I drain pool threaten lives and we start over.
About an hour into our fun, Luke says "nasty" Daisy has poop , I jump up and she tells me it's ok I just pooped in the pool.  Let me say now with pool drained and log scooped and tossed into forest these children are crazy and they must get it from me, because I bought the water guns and the stinking (literally) pool, I had delusions of basking in the sun reading a novel, yes sounds even crazier as I write it.
Oh and to boot, the 103 pound dog took a dip in the creek that's pronounced CRICK here.  I had to hose her down and get the mud off of her, I was dry and clean  she shook her muddy dog germs all over me.
So here's to summer and my plan to watch very little TV.  Maybe tomorrow we can try again, MAYBE!

I remember my younger half-sister running in and proclaiming that someone had pooped in her pool. The curious thing is that she was the only one swimming in it. Hmmm.

PS - At least they didn't fill the squirt guns with soda and spray down your kitchen and living rooms.
Darn kids.
