When the kids go over to the sandpit, and ask to use the hose (or not) I give them free rein. Water + sandpit + kids = peace and quiet for some time for me.
They get quite busy engineering rivers and moats and exciting stuff.
Its also amusing for destructo kitty #1 (or #2, who can tell, they both look the same), who apparently missed the part in the kitty manual about cats not liking water.
The Husband calls them Pobblebonk Frogs, not from any sort of scientific approach or research, but because apparently that is the sort of noise they make when it rains. I can't confirm or deny this, not have been witness to this type of frog making the noise. They do however, puff themselves up when handled.
Fortunately for the frog, it was also far away from sandpit digging uncles, who came along and decided that excavations needed to be enlarged.
End of story.
