I was letting the kids play in the backyard. While it is still cool, we have only one rule: Do not play in the water. All the kids are asked to recite this single rule before going out to play.
All was going well until I went inside for a moment. My momma senses began to tingle, so I went to the bathroom window to take a peek. Sure enough, the kids were clustered around the water garden, catching snails and picking water lilly leaves.
I cracked the window and said, "Get out of the water," in my menacing Momma voice. The kids looked all around not knowing where my voice was coming from.
Emma kept saying, "Where are you, Momma? How can you see us?"
Evy said, "It's Momma Magic."
