It’s been such a wild ride, but Dax finally finished his swim lessons today. And I’m so proud of him <3
It was a two week session, and the first week was great- I even made the oh-too-soon remark that he was going to end up being the best in class. (Don’t we all think that as moms? ;) He was one of the oldest in the class and was catching on super quick. And then came week two…
When it can time to kick his feet, blow bubbles, and move his arms- he was fine. When it came time to do all that on his own, it was not so fine. And screams and cries and kicks occurred. I was pretty shocked at the whole thing, and I’m telling you that for a few days he was the loudest screamer in class lol.
So we practiced in the tub at night this week, and I kept telling him that he could do it. I also reminded him that Wow Wow Wubsy says to ‘Have No Fear’ in one of his favorite episodes. (That seemed to stick, lol)
Today was the big finale and although he cried a bit, he swam four times! This also marks the day that he received his first award, how cute!!!
I can still remember cuddling him as a newborn… time sure does fly, doesn’t it?
