Two Seconds Is Too Long

I had a nightmare that Payton drowned. Not like in a pool or a lake or anything like that. Not like a fluke accident. It was nothing but 2 seconds of water running while I leaned over to search for something I dropped on the ground. The exact situation could never happen the way I dreamed it, especially because he was an infant in the dream, but the reality of 2 seconds has really hit home. And the feeling of complete helplessness as I was trying to perform CPR on an infant whose lungs had already filled with water will probably never leave me.

Anyway... watch your kids around water! Bathtub, swimming pool, kiddie pool, 5 gallon water pail, dog dish... YIKES! I don't want to know anyone that loses a child in this manner.
