I turned around for a minute to dry off a little one who had just emerged from the pool..
Then I hear a splash followed by an admonishing 13 yo saying "Mama, would not be happy..."
I turn to see our little 5 yo bobbing in the pool and I order him out.
I give said 5 yo a stern lecture on the dangers of jumping from the ledge. I give him a wonderful verbal discourse on the dangers of jumping into shallow water..I throw out terms like paralysis and wheelchair..This one is fearless.. I must instill a bit of healthy fear ..I will not let those dimples the size of moon craters sway me.. I must stay strong...
He looks at me with big eyes and says, "But Mama, I didn't jump.."
"You didn't jump?" I ask ..
"No Mama, honest.." he says emphatically.. " I didn't jump.. ..........................
I did a FLIP.."
