How do I get my little guy to LOVE the water? We took him to the pool yesterday and he clung to me like a monkey. He hid his face in my chest and peeked out at the kiddie pool fountain like it was a scary monster. Although he was super cute, I want him to learn to be brave. A healthy dose of caution is okay, but I want him to be safe and have fun. Wow, I sound like the mom I never thought I’d become.
