Our local park includes a paddling pool which is filled from May to September and is the place to go if you’re under five in our neck of the woods (it’s best not to think about what’s in it). Last year Little B was still a baby and although he sat at the edge and splashed about a bit this is the first year he’s walking and able to play in it properly. I thought it would be a total nightmare having to keep my eyes on two of them playing in it and imagined them running in opposite directions, but BB has been so good looking after her little brother that so far I’ve been able to sit back and – dare I say it – relax!
