Aug 08, 2012 Fearless A couple of weekends ago we took our son to the beach, and we learned that our son is truly not afraid of the water. We sat him down on the sand thinking he would just sit and play with his toys, but we were pleasantly surprised that he would rather go into the ocean. He just ignored all the stuff we brought, and crawled towards the water. This little guy had no fear. If it weren't for us picking him up right before the waves splashed our son would be pretending to swim. So, my wife and I talked about this fun experience, and we came to the conclusion that our son will fearlessly play water sports or be a beach bum.
