When did water balloons become anything but summertime fun? Apparently when the girls hit 8. We recently had family in town from Texas. Yes everything in Texas is bigger and so when Reno temperatures hit 98 the kids decided to make water balloons… Texas style. So while we parents sat in my courtyard drinking Texas sized glasses of wine we watched as balloon after balloon was filled to cantaloupe size proportions. Maybe comparing them to melons is where I went wrong. Because not one balloon was thrown that night. Instead they we’re gently placed inside my 8 year old’s bikini top… Her 10 year old cousin following suit with mischievous giggles. Even my 7 year old son joined in by placing two avocado sized balloons in HIS swim suit. We all laughed and thought how cute they’re playing grown up with their body parts. Until the next day when I took the girls to Sephora and the balloon tatas came along. They also went to Victoria Secret, The Game Stop and later in the evening to a friend’s house.
I had to laugh when at the end of the day both girls noted how everyone they talked to kept looking at their chest instead of their eyes. Yes big boobs are eye catchers even when they are made of water balloons.
