No pool? No problem. Swim in a basin!

Our family’s swimming plans yesterday did not push through because of a wonderful change in our plans. So we thought of going out today.

Change of Plans

But we had another change of plans.

You see, last night, I had a hard time putting Dindin to sleep. I started lulling her around 9 pm but she couldn’t sleep. She must have been waiting for her Papa to come home from his cousin’s birthday blowout that Dindin never slept until Papa came home.  And it was already 10:30PM.

After that, I got wired from trying to put her to sleep that instead of resting, I ended up working until 3am so that we both got up around 10:30am this morning. Ugh, it’s almost noon.

One Day Budget Trip to Bacolod

So instead of going to Sta. Fe Resort — one of the oldest resorts here in Bacolod, we ended up filling a big wash basin with water and placing it in the garden. That way, Dindin can bathed in it while enjoying the garden breeze, as we have some plants around her.

Honestly, it was quite some time since she last did this that now, she looks too big for the basin! haha She used to be literally swimming in this same basin! But look at her abs! weeee

Then her paternal grandparents came home from church and joined us in the garden so well, this was already kinda our family time at home. Is that a mermaid pose?

Getting Creative

Family bonding time need not always be grand or would use up a lot of budget. Sometimes, with some creativity, you can already come up with something fun that the kids will already enjoy. Cooling ourselves this summer doesn’t mean that we go to the resorts every day. We can just do this at home. Don’t worry about the water bill — it’s still much more expensive to go to the resort.

It’s really up to us parents what kind of standards we want to set for our children and what they can expect from us.

    I always have difficulty of putting my little girl to sleep, even for a nap. There was a time before she turned 1 that she would wake up around 1030 pm because that’s the time her Daddy got home. It’s like she have a body alarm that she have to welcome her Daddy home, hahaha!
