We are pool owners and because of this my inlaws think they can just drop in to use our pool at their leisure.
DH and I are very paranoid about pool safety for our child and we need to develop some rules that apply to the pool in our home and others need to follow them, but I want these to be fair rules and not just mean because my inlaws are driving me crazy with using our house like a hotel.
My FIL turned up the other day with my 20 mth old niece to swim in my pool when I wasnt home. (he has a key to let himself through the side gate) I was furious when I found out and phoned my SIL and FIL and told them that if Im not home, you do not use the pool, you need to ask me before just turning up and the baby must be in the pool with her PARENT. If Grandad wants to join he can, but he is not to be sole guardian in our pool.
SIL text me today again to come over. I said, no Im not home. There is a very good local public pool closer to them than we are that they can use for $3. And seriously, is it going to be a daily thing in summer?
I enjoy having our kids together in the pool, dont get me wrong, but not every day is convenient either and they need to be fine about finding something else to do if it doesnt suit us.
anyway, I got off track with a rant, but would appreciate any feedback. Thank you.
