The layout is about one Summer I worked in France (Cote d'Azur) as an au-pair. I went there 2 (or was it 3?!) Summers in a row working for the same nice family who normally lived near Paris. This house was their Summerhouse! There was grandpere Rene, his son Bob (Robert) and his wife Simone and ofcourse their 2 daughters Valerie and Laurence. The second Summer I worked for them Bob's brother Philip came over with his wife Reina and their son David. The two brothers hadn't seen eachother since they were very small boys. Their parents seperated when they were very young and the (American) mother returned to the USA with her youngest son and Bob stayed with his dad in France. So it was a very special moment when they arrived from the airport at the summerhouse in Theoule. We were at the pool when they arrived and David (tired from the flight) was yelling that he wanted to swim. Because his wings were somewhere in a suitcase the parents told him that he couldn't but he was yelling louder and louder and so they told him he could only go into the water if he stayed on the stairs. I was sitting on the wall watching everybody. The family was so busy talking to eachother that they forgot about David. I didn't, and when I saw him going under, because he had left the stairs, I jumped into the water with my clothes on and lifted him up. Because he wasn't aware yet of the dangerous position he was in, he was yelling to me: "I don't want to leave the water, I don't want to leave the water!" and he was kicking me with his feet.
I'm so glad that Zander told me that he can't cope with 2 friends around him. This is really new to me!! It means he is becoming more aware of what is good for him and what isn't!
