Water, water everywhere…

I am a complete wimp when it comes to getting in the water. It could take me a good half hour. As my nieces and nephews have know for years – “Do not splash Uncle John.” So I had no choice but to lay down the law with my son when we were in my brother’s pool this summer.

This was his third pool experience. The first was just having his feet in a friends’ pool in the late spring. He was kicking his feet and having a blast with this first-time experience, and was quite mad when his mean parents ended it. (He was equally mad when we stopped his other first-time experience of the day – eating gravel.)

His very first “swimming” experience was on the beach in Florida in the spring. He was naked and as soon as my wife touched his feet to the water, he peed.

    Hahaha…very similar to me. Mason loves to splash in the pool, but until I’m immersed and used to the water, keep him away!
