4 year old Super Hero!

Two nights ago my 4 year old and I went swimming. I forgot his floaties but told him not to go in too far. The pool is one you can just walk in like the beach. There was a little 2 year old boy also without floaties and the mom was sitting really far away. I was sitting in the Jacuzzi but was keeping a close eye on him. I'm paranoid. Mitchell goes in almost to his shoulders I tell him he is going to far. The little boy fallows  my son and now he's under the water. The mom runs over and starts screaming and doesn't even go in to get her son. I tell Mitchell pick him up. So Mitchell picks up the boy and carries him to the little boy's mom. The little boy was under for a while but starts coughing so he was ok. My 4 year old just saved a little boys life. The worse part about it was the mom starting yelling at the 6 year old little girl because she wasn't watching her brother. The 6 year old was in the Jacuzzi. Why wasn't the mom sitting on the end of the pool where the 2 year old was playing? It was night time and you can hardly see a crossed the pool at night. Not only that the 6 year old had floaties on not the 2 year old. Why are you making a non swimmer watch another non swimmer? Maybe I am just a paranoid mom but when it comes to water and babies it makes me have anxiety.
On a cute note, Mitchell's words when we get home "I'm a super hero" as he flexes his arms. Yes you are my boy.


  1. That's so adorable! But being a lifeguard, I TOTALLY understand where you're coming from with that anxiety!

  2. And you need to give heme lifeguard in training shirt. It is amazing and I am also paranoic about water...

    1. I think I'm going to make him one. Good idea. His dad was a lifeguard for a pool back in high school.
