The kids started swimming lessons yesterday. They all had a great time and left smiling. As I was putting Jake to bed, I asked him about his day:

Me: What was your favorite part of swimming lessons?

Jake: Jumping off the diving board.

Me: Really?

Jake: Yeah. It was a little scary, though.

Me: Well, sometimes the most fun things are a little scary.

Jake: Yeah. (pause) I wish I’d done a back flip.
