Waterboy

My child has always loved water. When he was really little, I would set him up on the kitchen floor with several bowls of water and a bunch of measuring cups. He would spend an hour or better pouring from one cup to another, from the cups to the bowls, then back again. When he could walk, my folks got him a water/sand table that he just loved. He would spend hours playing at that table. When we built our pool at our Chandler home, he was the first one in and spent as much time in it as we would let him. When we moved back to Arizona after living in the Midwest for 18 months, the home we bought didn't come with a pool. And he really misses having one.

Today, we spent the day with some friends of ours. And they happen to have a pool. Which Master J spent six hours in. He left the pool a total of three times, twice to use the rest room and once to eat. He's now passed out in his bed. He fell asleep on the way home, which he never does. It was a really fun day. Now I'm thinking I need to put a pool in the backyard. I just need to sell twenty houses to pay for it.

This is how he spent half of his time...



This is how he spent the other half...

I remember swimming like that when I was a kid...my lungs actually hurt later that night from holding my breath so much! Good times...good times!
