I Am Just Waiting on My Heart Attack

because The Wild Child is sure to give me one some day.

Last night we had been swimming at my ILs house. The kids got out and we got them all dressed and ready for dinner. Of course, at 3.5, WC can't yet swim on her own, so we use a floatation swimsuit and arm floaties as an added measure.

So we're sitting by the pool chatting, and I see WC take off her canvas Crocs and dunk them in the pool. Fab- they'll take 2 days to dry...

Then she walks down to the first step in the pool and sits down. In her clothes. Super.

Then my brother-in-law says, "Can she swim?" just as WC is walking down the steps and completely lets herself go under water.

"Nope." I say as I step towards the pool, prepared to jump in (fully clothed) when I see a little hand emerge out of the water just in time for me to grab it and yank her out.

And she's laughing. Hysterically. She thinks it's a riot and isn't scared at all.

Holy crap. It's a good thing she's such a sweetie so I can forget about being worn slick when she gives me a big hug and a kiss!

The kid really is a wild child! Get her to bed and have a drink. You need it!

Bless her heart. She'll totally be the one to keep you on your toes until she gets older.

In fact, she should probably never meet K. They're too much alike.

Oh lord...sounds like her Fraternal Twin Caden.

Oh my gosh - she sounds EXACTLY like AJ. Exactly. What on earth did we do to get such wild children?

Have you been able to let your mind rest since this? That girl is a WC!
