Holy sh*****t....Colton could have drowned today. I watch them like a hawk when they are in the pool. I was right there at the pool edge (kiddy pool). They walk around and play all the time and I sit on the edge. It is less than 1 ft deep. I stood up for a second to take off my cover-up so I could hop in and looked back down and Colton was face down and squirming. It took me a second to figure out he was drowning. He lost his footing and was face down and didn't know what to do. HOLY CRAP. I jumped in and got him. It maybe lasted 5-6 seconds...but holy crap. That was the scariest thing of my life.
Floaties, vests, etc. don't help. Just a reminder you have to be right there ALL THE TIME. I kept him up an extra two hours tonight just to make sure he is okay. I read all the "dry drowning" stuff online and he doesn't have symptoms. And I've checked on him every 30 minutes.
Oh my. Scary. Scary. Scary.
