Declan had his first swimming lesson this morning. Guess who was much more nervous than he was? (ME!)
But he did great. OK, he was a little nervous too, but the instructor was great and coerced him into the water pretty easily. I was seriously impressed at how he handled the kids. I guess that’s why he is the teacher.
And of course, I was totally Annoying Mom and had both the video and still camera aimed at my son the whole time. I am sure there are other moms who are making fun of me on their blogs this very minute.
I have to admit this meant more to me than I thought it would. My parents were very much into sailing when I was a child and we were always out on the water in Maryland – I knew how to swim pretty much before I could walk. I took lessons all throughout my youth. So it definitely gave me the warm fuzzies watching my monkey out there. Sniff sniff.
