Day Four Revelation AKA Won't somebody think of the children!

I've just added our day four entry. I have another photo to share, but I thought it deserved a post all of its own. I've thought long and hard about sharing this but look, if you can't laugh at yourself then life isn't worth living.

Back at home I take Tiny Girl to swimming lessons once a week. Because she's so little I have to go in with her and I have been for maybe 18 months, perhaps a bit longer. So each week I hop in the pool, swimmers on, surrounded by many other kids, parents and people watching from the sides. I always wear the same swimmers and I'd recently noticed that the front was a little worn, nothing too extreme though.

Fast forward to our trip.

After our swim we walked back to the camper. I downed my towel and stood, with my back facing my family. That's when the laughing started.

See it seems that my swimmers had worn a little on the front and a LOT on the back. So much so that they were see-through, right across my bum. There was in fact extreme crack exposure. (Yes it's crass, but it's true.)

Of course I didn't believe them. So I made them take a photo to prove it. And there it was in all its glory.

For months and months no-one told me. Not the parents at swimming, not the teacher, not even a kid with a snide 'hey I can see that lady's bum!' Oh the horror of it all.

So the moral of the story is, check you swimmers every time you go, if there's wear in the front make darn sure you check the back. And never, ever rely on the sisterhood to have a word in your ear......

I've edited the photo so you can share my horror in a G rated way. Scroll down if you dare.

































The further down it went, the worse it got......

Lol, oh Lorna!! I love that they took a picture of it for you! The elastic on my swimsuit bottoms gave out one day when I was in the pool with Laina and when I stood up, down they went! Luckily I caught them before they fell all the way, but still, it was not G-rated, lol!

Roared with laughter at this!! I am cringing for you. I would have told you... Now, note to self, when buying new swimmers, no white ones. Just in case they turn out to be see-through too...
