Adam loves baths. He loves watching, and catching, the water pouring into the bath. He loves being showered. He loves splashing.
Adam hates the pool.
So for a while now, trips to the pool have been annoying, to say the least. Emily loves being in the water, Adam will refuse to get in. How do I tear myself apart to be close to both of them, for safety reasons? It usually results in me dragging Adam in and having to endure however long of him moaning and screaming and trying to climb out.
But as we walked along the isles in Ace Hardware the other day, we spotted the holy grail of swimming gadgets. A baby swim seat... with a steering wheel.
I knew this was going to work.
He wouldn't come out of the water.
I have found the key to peaceful visits to the pool.
