It must be freaky to go nostalgic on an inflatable pool. But look at it from a mother's point of view. The pool comes out only once a year, in summer. And so essentially, as soon as the kids dive in --the inflatable pool transforms into a growth chart. It tells you in one quick glance how your sweet, little babies have grown into big kids the past year. Or, if you choose to be delusional, how your pool shrunk during storage.
Sometimes it is better to be a little delusional.
