Being Five

Caroline swims every day at the most wonderful camp in the world. This means that every day, I need to remember to pack a bathing suit. Caroline is wearing these bathing suits from Land's End this year. They are fantastic because they are two piece making dressing and undressing incredibly easy. They are apparently not fantastic because I have to remember two things.

Caroline showed up at camp yesterday with only the top half of her bathing suit.

Her counselor told her that it would be fine to wear her extra pair of underwear as her bottoms. Well, this would have been fine if I hadn't accidentally packed this cute diaper cover of Katherine's into Caroline's back pack. It looks an awful lot like underwear and often ends up in Caroline's underwear drawer...

Now for the good part. And the part that makes me wish I was still five. As Caroline told us this story, her face got brighter and brighter, happier and happier. Until she could barely get out the part about the diaper cover. She thought is was one of the funniest things that had ever happened to her. She went swimming in her sister's diaper cover. Which not only was a diaper cover, with ruffles on the back... it would have been three sizes too small. There was not a trace of embarrassment. To be five again and to be that self-confident always...

I loved this story. I hope she keeps that lack of self-consciousness as long as possible. And what a sense of humor! I give credit, too, to her counselors and campmates for taking it all in stride.
