Love the pool, hate the pool
Now, today he fought me to put the bathing suit on, again! So, I just made him put it on. Little did he know our schedule changed and instead of having land therapy first, we headed straight to the pool at 9. The apprehension and fear made him so upset all morning. However, when we got into the shower area we made a deal that we would stay out in the open area to take off the gauze if he didn't scream and cry. Well, what do you know? He just repeatedly said, "Ouch, Ouchie." This may seem trivial but it was a huge step for all within listening range.
Pool was good, then came post-pool shower time. Then out came the screams I was used to hearing. "Don't touch me!" Oh, and here's a good one, "Daddy!!" Sorry, kid. Calling for daddy while he is 2 hours away will not save you, but I bet it makes daddy feel good :)
Pin care was again the pits. Once it's all done though, our day is all uphill.
