I was outside playing with London. We were doing gymnastics in the yard and the boys were doing a water gun fight. I remember thinking …'Soak up this moment because it’s not going to last forever.' Somewhere between 30 seconds and 3 minutes, we don’t know, Amber and I are inside our pool gate doing CPR on our son.
