Swimmingly

He’s a waterbaby, all of a sudden.

Three swimming lessons later, and he’s loving the swimming pool. Loving going underwater, and getting his face wet. Loving jumping into the pool, and kicking about with his father.

My baby is learning to swim. The first time I went along to watch, I had a lump in my throat the whole time. My baby is learning to swim.

My little boy, is growing up.

Where’s the pause button?

    Wow! He’s a big boy now…I’ll either have to teach Nicola myself or not watch while someone else does it. I’d be too nervous.

  8. 🙁 I know! In the throes of nappies, sleepless nights, tantrums and the rest we FORGET that the season is so short. The best thing to do is Live IT every day. Learning to swim is a HUGE deal; clearly he has it waxed.
