Little Fish, lifeguard

Little Fish being still in the post-op-must-wear-a-brace-24-hours-a-
day stage of life, swimming is not an option for her. I suppose more
selfless families would sacrifice all their swimming, ignore the
poolhouse keys, and find something else to do with their holidays.
Being us, we decided to go anyway.

I had many diversions planned to distract Little Fish, we had
emergency back up plans to swim in shifts, and lots of compensatory
schemes to console her.

And Little Fish has confounded us all. "I be the lifeguard, Mummy, you
swim, I throw the ball.". And so she did. Not a complaint, not a
grumble, no hint of being left out. Not bad for a four year old.

Lovely photo - the background is particularly suitable for a little fish.

Do you think that it helped that she was above you (so to speak) being perched up high on the side and that as she could see what you were doing at all times, it mitigated her natural anxiety at being left out?

Oh, and plus she's a trooper. I tell you, we're missing out big-time on the whole fan club idea. Yay for the Sprats! There should be badges. Definitely yes to badges, and perhaps a club saying. Any suggestions?

Great job for a little fish! Glad she didn't feel that anyone needed to be rescued.

Hugs & Prayers,
