Senior Swim

The beautiful weather in Sedona made for some lovely evening swims.

One particular evening there were many retirees  lounging by the pool enjoying the lovely weather.

My littlest being observant of the older age demographic got a special twinkle in his eye as he walked through the pool gate.

He stood over  the edge of the pool where everyone could see him and exclaimed, “Hey everybody! It looks like we arrived just in time for Senior Swim! Lets hop in!”

It was with that he did a cannon-ball into the pool making a very  big splash!

My face turned sweltering-red as I turned to look for a lounge chair to crawl under and  pretend it wasn’t my child.

Do your family members say the darndest things at the most inappropriate times?

  1. He is so cute! I could imagine your face at that moment 🙂
    My older one when she was baptized, she shouted “Hooray!” Everyone in the church and the priest was laughing so hard. This was more like unexpected cheer but not quite as what your littlest did! 🙂

  2. So funny! My young old son, on a swimming trip, also had a profound thought of which he felt the need to share. As we got into the pool, three elderly folk got out. He turned to me and said “Look mam, the water has wrinkled them up” I had nowhere to hide.

  3. Oh boy. I would have been mortified. It’s something my boy would have in him… I think. My little one definitely doesn’t have a filter yet and she says the darnest things… she’s forgiven easily because she’s only 3 and she’s very cute.

  4. I apparently embarrassed my mother as a child by pointing out in what I thought was a whisper that the lady on the bus seat opposite us was wearing a brooch with green stones on a blue jumper and that Mummy had told me that “blue and green should never be seen”. Both Mummy and the lady turned bright red and Mummy started an apologetic conversation with the lady about “they’re wearing them now”, etc. I got into awful trouble when we got off the bus!

      1. Lots of people do. However, back in my youth, it was apparently frowned upon. You weren’t supposed to wear red and orange together, either. I’m sure there were others, but I can’t remember them, now.

  5. Ok, so maybe it wasn’t the cutest thing at that moment, but reading this… I love your son… He is so cute… and I am usually the one who says the wrong thing, and since I talk loud…. Well, you get the point 🙂

  6. With children, every moment could turn to something so unexpected . . . I’m sure the ‘seniors’ got a kick out of your little one! 🙂 Cool!

  7. Oh, Darcie, I can just picture your face. lol! Kids do and say the darnedest things, don’t they? I remember my oldest, when she was little, holding my hand as we walked down Market St. in San Francisco, she pointed to a very heavy person walking to us, and said, “Look mommy, that’s a fatso!” I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me whole. Sigh!

    1. Oh my goodness! I would have turned bright red and ran the other way. You never know what they are going to say and just hope the person on the receiving end takes it with a grain of salt 🙂

  8. That was what I loved about my kids is that they said the darndest things at the oddest times. Comic relief!
