The Water

Johnny has always loved the water.

When he was a newborn he was so fussy. Crying all the time, but as soon as I would put him in the baby bath he would kicked, laugh, and smile. An instant fix until he got out.

He was and is at home in the water.

So comfortable there.

Water is our happy place, but also our scary place.

J is attracted to water. He would walk right into the ocean if he could.

He’s tried.

He’ll stick his face in the water for long periods.

No fear.

He has to be watched at all times.

So funny how the place we have the most smiles, and some of the best memories, can also haunt us.
