I will be alone at the pool with my DD (5) this summer. I am wondering what do single parents of younger ones do about water slides? Usually we have one person at the top to go down after the kids and one in the water waiting as they come down the slide. I don't really want DD walking up the stairs to the slide alone. So I would be going down either before or after her. She's a pretty good swimmer, but I think I still might put a life vest on her. How do those of you there alone handle the slides? Is it better to slide before or after my DD?
