I was determined that this summer feel "summery" and wanted to use our swimming pool every day. So instead of our pool being a special occasion thing (which we reserved for weekends because we didn't want to suffer the consequences from the pool heating bill), we cranked it up and got in the pool every day this summer. A few weeks in, our 3-year-old daughter Margaux was swimming by herself across the pool, and she and her brother had mastered their favorite new game, "Margaux Polo." And despite me wanting to do anything but put a bathing suit on, I got in every day, too. Turns out my kids don't care how I look in a bikini and they had a blast swimming every day this summer — sometimes more twice!
