How a four-year-old distills information to the most necessary point in 100 or fewer words:
We're visiting the pool for the first time this summer, and I seize the opportunity to pepper the girls with instructions as we cross the parking lot. I see the moment as a preemptive strike, my thirty seconds when I can cram all advice on proper swimming behavior and water safety into their minds.
"What are some rules that we need to remember when we're at the pool, girls?" I begin.
My four-year-old responds immediately. "Don't drown."
The child knows how to cut to the chase, doesn't she?
