First of the season
The kids christened my parent's new pool today! The water was a bit chilly, but they didn't notice. We had one small incident. KayTar was sitting on the shelf in front of me splashing happily and I turned just long enough to tell BubTar he could go ahead and get in because we had dry clothes for him and I heard "Splash!". I turned to see KayTar falling into the deeper water. She had crawled off the shelf in the 15 seconds or so my attention was on BubTar. Her head had just dipped underwater when I caught her. It happened so fast! I won't be turning my head again! She was completely fine, she didn't even cough or sputter. She just said "Pss" which is her version of "Oops." and she kept pointing towards the shelf edge and signing "Down." In spite of her unexpected dip, she had a wonderful time splashing around. She was extremely upset when it was time to get out of the water!
Tomorrow we have an ENT appointment to get clearance for her hearing aid! Woohoo!
