When I need a little break, I just let the boys play out back in the hose and it usually tires them out and they will take a nice LONG nap for me! Well the other day Vance says, "Mom, look, I made a swimming pool! Yep. thats my genius kid! LOL. He seriously would not take his head out of the bucket! I am glad my neighbors didn't peek over the fence... they would have thought I was drowning my kid! Ah man.. I love Vance!
