As I type this it's 98 degrees outside in the shade and 85 degrees in our house! I'm turning into the Wicked Witch of the West over here...."i'm melting, i'm melting" (can you tell i've always been a Wizard of Oz fan?)
Our kiddie pool was set up today (thank you Jeff) and I know that is definitely going to help us beat this heat, but I thought i'd share a couple of tricks we've picked up these past few days.
- My sister-in-law, Kristen, gave us hot water bottles with handmade flannel covers for Christmas one year and we've been sticking those in the freezer and cuddling them at night. I think this is the ONLY reason we've survived!
- Today I finally remembered my little rice pillow, and popped that in the freezer as well. It works great for Wes- cool, but not too cold and I don't need to worry about him freezing his little diaper off. In fact, he's snuggled up with it right now for his afternoon nap.
Honestly, it's so hot I'm not motivated to do a thing! So, I'm watching Mermaids and dreaming about diving in the cold ocean ;)
Any tips for staying cool?
