Swim class

“The water’ll make your boo-boo feel better,” you said into the silence.

We were on our way to swim class. Daddy and Mommy talked about swimming with you afterwards. But Daddy had poison ivy on my forehead, and Mommy didn’t feel good and had to stay home. Although we planned to swim, we explained that we wouldn’t.

Daddy’s poison ivy.

“The water’ll make your boo-boo feel better,” you said from the back seat while we were driving.

You’d been quiet for a while and obviously had been thinking about it.

“The pool water wouldn’t be good on it,” Daddy said.

“You can wear a Band-Aid,” you quickly suggested.

“It’s too big for a Band-Aid.”

“Oh, okay.”

You have an incredibly kind heart.

Swim class appeared to be a success.
