This fountain is one of Frances’s favourite summer destinations.
Since about 9 months of age, Frances has been fascinated by light-emitting objects: book lights, flashlights, house lights — during the day and during the night.
Once she is distracted by a light-emitting object, it is very hard to redirect her attention. Unless it’s at bedtime, we generally don’t mind, though we discourage turning house lights on and off repeatedly.
