Dad forgets he’s wearing swimming goggles, 45 minutes after he gets out of the pool

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (FTN) – A Terre Haute dad said a trip to the pool ended with his son making fun of his fashion choices.

The incident happened Sunday morning in southern Vigo County.

Three-year-old Alex Essex’s dad, Chris, took the child to the pool. Once they got back inside, Chris jumped directly to lunch

“I came back in and went right into lunch mode. I try and keep a very solid routine. I got Alex into dry clothes, started his lunch, got me into dry clothes. I finished cooking his lunch, got it on the plate and everything before Alex told me I had the goggles on,” Chris said.

The three-year-old made fun of his dad’s out of fashion choices.

“Daddy was wearing goggles at lunch,” Alex told us. “Goggles go in the pool.”

Chris, for his part, isn’t sure how he forgot he had them on.

“I went to the bathroom…washed my hands, with the mirror in front of me, I was ready to go about my dad. If Alex didn’t call me out, I might still be wearing them,” Chris said.

Chris said, in the future he will take extra steps to make sure an incident like this doesn’t happen again.

“I’m just glad I didn’t need to go anywhere.”
