Just need to get off my chest.
Yesterday we took DS1&2 for a casual swim at the same pool they have lessons.
It's a big pool and Ds1's lessons are held in the 'shallow end', it's roughly up to his neck (he is 5yrs old)
Anyway, I don't think Ds1 realised that the pool actually goes deeper the further you move up because during our casual swim he was holding onto the edge of the pool while making his way up towards the deeper end.
Dh and I were not too far away with Ds2, admiring his new swimming lesson talents.
Anyway Dh looked at Ds1 and said to me "I'll go over and give Ds1 some company".
Anyway just as Dh approached, Ds1 let go of the edge (I assume he thought he could touch the bottom) and he went straight down and couldn't touch the bottom of the pool. He obviously panicked and didn't know what to do. LUCKILY Dh just reached him and lifted him up out of the water.
I need to get out of my head the terrible thoughts I'm thinking if Dh didn't go to Ds1. Normally we are very, very cautious with the kids around water.
