I was letting him wade in the baby pool without his puddle jumper life jacket. The kiddie pool connects to the big pool with steps, but I just wasn't thinking. He usually just doesn't venture out out of the baby pools. I turned my back, for what felt like not even a minute to be social & talk and I looked back and did not see him, then i saw just his head going under in the deeper water, not even a second later before i could even react, I see my husband jump in fully clothed and get him. Malachi was fine, he was a little more leery to go in the water for 5 minutes, that is it, then he was back toodling around with me in the water.
My husbands' work and personal smartphones are ruined, we believe.
I was such an idiot and feel guilty and horribly embarrassed at the same time. But very grateful, so grateful we noticed as soon as we did.
Parent fail of epic proportion.
