No splashing in the pool!

OK so I haven’t taken the kids swimming in a while but because they were so hot yesterday I thought swimming would be a good way of cooling them down. So we went to our usual place knowing that at the time we went it wouldn’t be busy at all and we would pretty much have the pool to ourselves. So the kids love the water and were understandably extremely excited to be back in the pool. Now I noticed 2 ladies, using one lane and also a little boy having a private swimming lesson at the far end of the pool which was fine as we pretty much had the majority of the pool to ourselves as no one else was there.
...........
So as the kids are still learning to swim RD is still at the stage where he kicks his legs back and splashes everywhere whereas Cali doesn’t kick her legs out of the water anymore (I know I’m so shit at explaining stuff but I hope you get an idea of what I mean...) OK so RD was happily paddling away and I was closer to Cali as she wanted to take her swim ring off. So we were all having fun when RD paddled back to me and was like ‘Mummy that lady told me I’m not allowed to splash,’ So I’m there assuming it must’ve been the swimming instructor, but nope, it was one of the 2 grumpy cows I saw when we 1st got in. I thought how dare you, then I could feel myself getting super pissed and knew that if I went and said something to her I wouldn’t be able to stop my mouth from running and I didn’t wanna be cussing and getting all animated in front of the kids and scare them. So I thought fine, you wanna play the ass, fine, so I took the kids to where she was and was like ‘Let’s do big splashes!’ Cali didn’t need to be told twice she started spinning in circles splashing and screaming, RD was a bit more cautious almost like he was scared of the woman and asked me ‘If I splash will she tell me off again?’ I was like ‘RD that lady doesn’t own the pool it’s for everyone and she will not do anything to you, mummy is here you don’t need to be scared ’
...........
Now this stupid woman saw RD was with me so if she had a problem why not come to me stupid coward why make comments to a small child? RD don’t even look huge for his age he looks his age so why she would tell a 6 year old not to splash in a pool is beyond me. On top of that she was pregnant which pissed me off even more like you idiot you’re gonna be a mum soon and you’re here complaining about children when your child is gonna do the exact same thing in a swimming pool. Also someone splashing you is not gonna harm your baby, I used to go swimming all the time when I was pregnant with Cali, so who knows what her beef was. So after we finished splashing and the kids went back to paddling up and down the pool I just gave her the death glare till she got out the pool.
...........
How the ass do you go to a pool and tell people not to splash? Actually not even grown people, a 6 year old child. Umm it’s a swimming pool most people do splash. I mean I’ve been abroad during the high season without the kids and been in the pool and on the beach when it’s been full of kids jumping, diving and splashing and not once did it ever cross my mind to complain and tell them not to splash around me, OMG like get a life!! I was telling my cousin and she was saying ‘It’s like being in a restaurant and telling people not to eat food’ which is very true. I could understand if my 2 were older and splashing with force and doing cannon balls in the middle of people and throwing balls and bumping into her and being a nuisance, but they’re simply trying to swim, fuck sake. Like if you don’t wanna be splashed your uptight ass needs to save your pennies and get a private pool installed in your yard. Don’t go to public pools clearly they’re not for you!!
