Throw open the windows, dust off those flip flops, and jump for joy— spring is finally here! After what seemed like the neverending winter for lots of us this year, it's finally out with the snow day activities and in with the summer day activities, and we CANNOT WAIT.

In celebration of one of our favorite seasons, we're here to tell you just what you need to make your backyard magical, unforgettable, and, most of all, the envy of all the kids on your block this year:

A 5-foot inflatable rainbow sprinkler.

We can't think of a better way to celebrate the upcoming season of longer days, warmer temps, and backyard BBQs than with this totally amazing sprinkler. Simply inflate, hook up your hose to the corner of the rainbow, and let the fun begin.


It's the perfect way to let your kids play + cool off on hot summer days while you sit peacefully beside them, sipping a cool drink and reading your favorite book. (Hey, a mama can dream...)

This magical piece of summer is available from Pottery Barn Kids.

Sound familiar? Nothing limits sleep more than parenthood. And nothing is more sought after as a parent than a nap, if not a good night's rest.

But Mother Nature practically guarantees that you are likely to be woken up by a toddler—they're hardwired to find you (and get your attention) when you're "away."
