Slippery When Wet

Introducing the boys to Canadian culture is one of my parenting challenges.  I feel it’s important that they understand the curious ways of their Mother’s homeland.  I am always searching for learning opportunities.  So we couldn’t pass up this important Canadian activity:  The Slip and Slide.

What is a slip and slide you ask?  Yago didn’t know either.

The key ingredients are water, plastic, a slope and gravity.

“Mom, You expect me to hurl my body down slope and expose myself to frigid Canadian waters?  Hell NO!”

But if it involves nakedness and frolicking…..”

“Hell YES!”

So the lesson to take away today is,

Canadian summer is a precious thing.



  1. Honey, take it up a notch and add some dish soap. The boys will FLY half way across the yard. Oh yeah, and you won´t have to bother giving them a bedtime bath 🙂
