3rd TIME's a charm


This is one of my girls FINALLY enjoying a waterslide I found at a killer deal on Craigslist. SCORE....or so I thought.

I was beginning to think that this brilliant, fun, super cool "mommy" idea I had was a complete waste of time and money.

The first time we inflated it, it wouldn't even hold the weight of the water. I called the company who maked the slide, and they (to my amazement) rushed out a BRAND NEW, BETTER version of what I bought used.

The second time we inflated it, it held air very well, but the blower burnt out. For the 2nd time, my kids hearts and spirits were broken, and I went from feeling like super cool mom to the worst mom in the world in record time.

I found a replacement blower on ebay for a decent price...and got it today.

The third time we tried to have some fun with this slide...we were sucessful!

Can I just say, I am SO glad. I was about to give up...
