PSA: 5 Pool Party Tips for Parents

I submitted an article for MomsLA this week - my first! I don't know what took me so long except a combination of fear, doubt and prolonged procrastination. Too bad that it took a near tragedy to motivate me to write it!

This is a Public Service Announcement to advocate pool party safety for parents. This is directed specifically at moms who don’t like to wear a bathing suit in front of a crowd and dads who like to have a drink in their hand at a pool party – the majority of us. 
Last weekend, my two year old son started to drown at a pool party – TWICE! I still feel the sick pit in my stomach remembering it. I had just read an article in the newspaper days before about several two year olds that had tragically drown in swimming pools on the 4th of July; it left a solid impression in my mind of how quick and silent drowning can be. I was prepared to be vigilant at the pool with my active, unpredictable son as well as my 5 and 7-year-old daughters who are still learning to swim proficiently.
