The first time that Glen V visited our backyard pool, he was a mere three months old.
His parents, the ever-lovely Kelly and Glen IV, had to do everything for the tiny tyke.
Now let’s fast-forward two years.
Glive (as we like to call him) is fun in the sun! He and his parents visited my younger son and I last week, and we had a swell time.
Fortunately, little Glen was wearing his Puddle Jumpers, so we didn’t have to worry about him sinking. It was cool watching him and marveling at how far he’s come since his first time in our pool.
This was a more-confident Glivester kicking his legs trying to swim, jumping into his dad’s arms, and squirting his mom with a water gun.
Of course, he did have his terrible twos moments, which resulted in him going into time out (at least he got to enjoy his snack, though; food always soothes the cranky Frankies, as we liked to call them way back when).
Other than that, it seemed like he’s learning to enjoy all the freedom that growing up brings.
Before we know it, little Glen will be just like this guy in the pool!
