Splashing the "Right" Way

As we were playing in the pool, my fun loving husband decided to make waves by splashing his arms. The kids thought it was great!

A bit later I decided to try making waves myself. I started splashing my arms, over the noise of the splashing I hear Tage telling me something. So, I stop...What? "That's not how you do it," he says with a straight face...."You have to put your hands like this."

With a confused look on my face..."Did you just correct the way I splash in the pool?"

In one simple moment I learned that instead of taking "helpful tips" as harsh critiques, I learned that my husband is simply a control freak. (he approved of me calling him that...) he he!

So, now when he tries to correct something serious, like my parenting skills...I simply think..."Ope, I must be splashing wrong."
