The Chief had a bubble machine
in his Amazon wish list for at least 4 years. Christmas would roll around and he would do his level best to convince me that one of our kids should have this machine. After several annual wifely rejections, he decided that asking my opinion was no longer productive and he went ahead and purchased it for our 6-year old. When he shared the news with me, I knew
he had just spent too much money on a lousy gift. That just shows you how much I know about these things; apparently not much. The evidence is in...
My humble apologies to the Chief for doubting his shopping abilities. This is so much cooler than pretty much any idea I had (even if she did have to wait 8 months to use it). One female child was inspired to say: If I get married, I want a bubble machine for a wedding gift! Perhaps her sister will just lend this one to her. :)
Update: Just wanted to add that this is not our pool although we are blessed to have a family member who lets us swim in it. We are quite spoiled by (and grateful for) their generosity!
