Water and Children...the perfect combination.
Add in a summers day with no school and you have a the beginnings of a childhood memory that will stay with you into old age. There is nothing better than the chance to spray your Dad with water from a wide sweep of your arm with an open palm...catch him just as he walks by...GOT HIM! Water is the neutralizer...it evens out the height difference and puts you in the driver's seat. There were times when my son was young with a water hose in his hand and a hideous glint of revenge in his eye...in complete control of me. I found myself begging..."Please...don't spray me" of course to no avail! That initial shock of the cold water at first angered me but then the laughter started and the water war began.
Where did I lose that spontaneity and where did Zach lose that innocence? Time and commitments I fear are the culprit causing the downfall of both of us.
