Today in the UK its a bank holiday and its hot.
This is usually great, but monkey has got it in his head that he wants to go to the park. I am very relaxed with the whole when you can and can’t go out in the sun, but even I can figure taking a small child out in this heat at midday is a bad thing, that does mean that both him and the dog (who I am also refusing to take out till later) are driving me nuts.
I have shown them both the garden, explained that they can play there, its shady, its cool and there is a paddling pool and a trampoline and I can roll the ball for Max.
This is not good enough there needs to be for the child, a slide, climbing frames, swings and the dog wants me to throw the ball as far as possible so he can run for it.
Basically they want to die of heat exhaustion.
Being an adult and saying no sucks
