Independence Day

I put David in his red diaper

and blue hat

with all of his red and blue toys

and plopped him in his pool

to wish everyone a very happy 4th of July.

[David was leaning over the edge of the pool and splashing, which caused lots of water to spill, and drenched our towel. Instead of leaving David with the pool and risking a drowning incident, I scooped him up and took him inside to get a new, dry towel. In case you missed the climax of the story, here it is again: I removed David from the pool and took him inside.

If you think 10 months is too young to throw a tantrum, then we’d like to tell you two things. 1) Happy 4th of July and 2) You’ve been misinformed about the age at which babies start throwing temper tantrums.]
