That means no pool. So AMP and I face 4 pm with a bleak stare. 4 hours left until bedtime, and we had already gone to the mall, eaten McDonald's happy meals at the food court, gone food shopping at the grocery store, been to the notary, and taken 2 hour naps. We had a suitcase half filled with toys and books, and of course, the tv signal disappeared today. And for the cherry on top, AMP was having "issues" - the kind you get from foreign water, if you know what I mean.
8pm arrives. They entertained themselves for 4 hours...all by themselves. Three new siblings, playing hysterically together -we both kept to the edges of the room, silently motioning to each other, but careful not to interrupt. There was one casualty along the way - one Happy Meal toy had it's own "issues" with foreign water!
