We have brought Ryan for a swim at our condominium's swimming pool a couple of weeks ago. However, our doctor has advised us against exposing him to public pools due to the recent outbreak of the foot and mouth disease.
So, if he can't get to a pool, the only other option is to bring the pool home. Hence, we went shopping for a mini pool for him and found a suitable one for him at Toy`r'us. Bought a pump as well.
Since having the pool home 2 weeks ago, he has been having his weekend frolic in the pool with either daddy or mommy and enjoying every minute of it. We filled it with about 8 inches of water and let him sit in it and played with his toys. On the very first day, he gave us all a fright when for a brief second, (while I let my hand off), he slipped and went under! I grabbed him and pull him immediately but not before he gobbled a few mouthful of water! He was coughing away. I thought that he would be fearful of playing with water again. He only paused of a minute to catch his breath and within minutes was going after his toys in the pool again. What a relief. Just go to show that we have to be extra careful when we put them anywhere near water.
