HWMBO and Cog aren't blood relatives and have always had a relationship disadvantage in that I have always actively encouraged Cog's relationship with her father over and above that with HWMBO.

He taught her to enjoy water and start swimming. He spent endless hours in a pool with her at Ayres Rock. I don't know how he did it.
He's thrown her around pools, taken her down enormous water slides and flumes.
