Mommas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Wear Speedos

Happy Labor Day, on behalf of our sister site, DC Metro Moms Blog (Which will be "officially" launching later this week). 

Joanne_2_2Labor Day weekend is one of the sweetest times to be at the swimming pool.  Sure, it's bittersweet -- most public pools in the D.C. area close after the start of school.  But it's great to just find that perfect lounge chair for a little reading, watch the kids splash in the pool and sip a cool drink while having a last few minutes of peace before the hoards descend on the nation's capital on the day after Labor Day.

But, dads, can I say just one thing?  At the pool, even if you're swimming laps ...

... Leave. The Speedo.  At Home.

Now, if you look like Michael Phelps today or like Mark Spitz did in 1972, then I say, 'Come on over to our pool!'  Otherwise, gents, could you save them for your trip to the Caribbean?

Why do I bring this up now?  Well, I had an 'experience' this weekend that I can only describe by saying there are just some things that you guys don't need to share at the family pool.  Some 'packages' should stay under wraps, so to speak.  Oh, and just in case you're wondering, light pink spandex is NOT a modest color when it gets wet.  Need I say more?

When Joanne gets over her Speedo trauma, you can find her at PunditMom and The Huffington Post.
