Lots going on here, great blog!


Dude, that is an eventful weekend. Swimming pools always make me nervous with kids, even before I had my own.

Makes my weekend of Amish barn-raising pale in comparison...


I think my heart stopped just then.

We have a pool. I worry about it ALL DAY LONG. I so want to get rid of it, because stuff happens that fast. Glad she's ok.

And I'll remember this when I lust after a hammock again...


okay, there's a fence around the pool that is mere feet from our house... and no uneven pavers, and no hammock. so you guys should be safe when you come to visit.

you'll probably still need to drink to ease the pain. i can handle stocking the fridge.

good god. how terrifying for you.

Dude - you're like Ashton Kutcher in The Guardian doing water rescues. Well, maybe Ashton 10 years from now? Or maybe Tom Arnold if they do another re-make of McHale's Navy: Rescue Hi-Jinks or somesuch.

Anyway, glad everything went ok and Cheeky is none the worse for wear.

L.A. Daddy

The one constant in all those stories was... you. Man, remind me to be careful if we ever hang out.

Sounds like you guys had fun. White pants and all!

What a weekend! I have such mixed feelings about pools... I love to swim, but just about anything with water in it totally freaks me out when kids are around.

I'm so glad Cheeky is OK!


Auuuuuuuuugh!!!!!! My stomach is still churning! No wonder you didn't call last weekend! Flash-backs of when Michael fell in the curalli's pool at 3. Sigh........... Pools have always been a worry, especially before I learned to swim. It only takes a moment.

Denver Dad

Ugh. Did you break a mirror or something? I recommend full body nerf suits for the whole family! Floats AND protects!


That's some weekend! Now if you had just stayed around town and hit the Blue Pig, I bet none of this would have happened.


I'm as glad as the next reader that your post didn't end in pint-sized water loggery.

But more pressingly: chicken fingers and cocktails are my metier. If ECG is looking for a cabana girl, I'd be happy to hang out and make use of all the floaty toys between visits while keeping the pool safe for the grandkids on the occasional weekend. Just pass her my deets.
