How having your own pot can keep you cool.

How having your own pot can keep you cool.

It was hot today, I hear we broke a record. As I was driving past New Milford High School this afternoon the temperature read .... 110.... how could that be?

I took my grandson over to his aunties house to swim in the pool this evening. He had a great time, no fear at all. After pool time he made his own entertainment....

Off went the bathing suit and diaper ....

Kid in a pot


In to the pot full of water he went... in and out, in and out.... Don't ask me how he fit in there, he screwed himself right down inside. I had fears he might get stuck, I was running that phone call to 911 in my head.

Kids, you really gotta love 'em. I have to say, it reminded me of one of those... "you know you're a redneck when".... jokes.

Stay cool, stick your head in a bucket of water. Do whatever it takes! We have a few more scorchers on the way!

Andrea, These photos are adorable. Kids have no concept of getting stuck … they are only in the moment … and boy is your grandson in the moment.

What a guy and sooooo resourceful.  Surely you will save these pics for him in later years!  Ha.  Hard to believe he fit in that pot.  Sue of Robin and Sue

Good morning all. Thanks for enjoying the photos of my grandson. The pictures were really hard to take because...

I was laughing so hard it was difficult to keep the camera still!

Great photos!

I guess Karen Anne & I are the only hippies, I was thinking this was going to be about a different kind of pot (and a different kind of 'cool').

Posted by Julia Odom, Chattanooga Homes for Sale (Select Realty Professionals) about 8 years ago

Gosh -- when I read your title, I though you had gone all ganja on us!

Posted by Richard Strahm, Lansdale and North Penn Real Estate (American Foursquare Realty) about 8 years ago

I was wondering how many would take the title the "wrong" way, LOL. :D

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) about 8 years ago

Andrea:  Funny thing is... I never smoked pot... not even when I was a hippie Junior High School teacher in the 1960's.  Actually, I never smoked ANYTHING.  I saw smoking killing both my parents... which it eventually did... so nope... none for me, thank you.

Andrea, they are fun to watch. We had the 16 month old grandson yesterday and he had a ball in the little pool my wife has on the deck for him. He also ended up without the protective bottom wrap (diaper). Too bad the pool wasn't big enough for adults, or even me. Thanks for sharing

Good Morning Andrea, The photos are so cute and a great capture, especially because you were laughing :-). Here we are in CA, usually really hot this time of year and the temp this morning was in the high 60's. Your heat wave hopefully ends soon. Wonderful Andrea!

How fun i this towards the end of the day.  I wasn't quite sure where you were going with the title!  It totally made me smile.  He sure is having one heck of a good time - and what a creative kid too!  Love this one Andrea!

Andrea, better to play around with that pot than the pot that I thought you were writing about :)

Wouldn't it be great to be that age and that Innocent again?

Andrea lovely shots.   This sure brought back memory of when my children where young, and they too entertained themselves with the pots.

Those lobster pots sure do come in handy!!!!

ANDREA: Grandchildren are such a joy. I thank you for putting a smile on my face as I enjoyed the cleverness and of your grandson. I also was taken by surprise by your title leading us to a pot that was so unexpected.

Guess I fooled a bunch of you with the title, LOL. He was back in the lobster pot this evening, we had another great laugh! I am certainly going to make sure he sees these when he is older, and that everyone else sees them too!

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) about 8 years ago

Andrea, great photos of your grandson...that is definitely one way to cool off :)
