I’ve read ‘stories’ from people in your newsletter and on the website, saying how people commented on how amazing it was that their kids were swimming so well, etc. I didn’t really buy that part-that what they were doing actually WAS amazing. Well, I took Ted to the pool today. One hour and 10 minutes later, I had to drag him kicking and screaming into the locker rooms so we could pick up Sam. He swam/floated the whole time, to the wall, to me, to the steps, etc. He must be sooo tired! Every person there, and anyone who walked by, commented on how amazing he was and couldn’t believe he was ‘only 2.’ He wasn’t kicking much today, preferring to float face down and then kick while on his back (??) so he wasn’t exactly being stellar. I’m so happy that he has such confidence in the water and that he loves it so much! What a bonus!
After I got him out, he ran away from me and jumped into the lap pool (brrrr). About 4 people lept up to run over, but he bobbed up, floated, swam over to the side, and laughed. Needless to say, it was a blast.
