I have allowed the boys to go outside for a few minutes by themselves as long as they stay in the backyard. I usually stand at the door and observe but on this day, I was doing laundry. It took me no longer than 5 minutes to change over but this is what happened to my yard. Cutter and Carsyn learned to turn on the water faucet and literally flooded our yard. They also ended up taking off their shorts and diapers. They were taking turns standing at the end of the spray allowing water to spray them on the bottoms. The would say "that tickles!" and run off. Little boys are so funny.
