"Mommy I'm fine! Leave me alone. I'm just going to stay right here"!
"Maybe I do want to go in"....
"Uh, maybe NOT...."
"Let's everybody get out of the pool"!
I took Emma to our neighborhood pool for the very first time on Friday of last week. Emma was very excited to check it out and a little bit less enthusiastic once she actually got there. I think that both the size and depth of the pool were a little bit daunting. Our neighbor Allison who is also Emma's new babysitter happened to be at the pool and even she could not convince Emma to go all the way in!
Emma is a natural dare devil and I am sure that by the end of the season she will be floating around the pool. : ) Like everything else, she will do it when she is ready. We went back to the pool this afternoon for 40 minutes and Emma decided to hang out in the baby pool instead with her new water noodle, she was thrilled. A couple of kids came in and out of the baby pool, it was cute to see Emma smiling and giggling at them. : )
