Swim Lessons!

Awhile ago, Boyfriend and I joined Lifetime Fitness.  Even though this gym is definitely one of the more pricey gyms it does offer a ton of amenities and most importantly child care that has very open hours.  Unfortunately I am lazy Baby hates the child care center so I don't get to work out often but we do utilize the pool often.  Baby just loves swimming and I know by next summer she will be able to swim on her own. 

I taught swim lessons for years (in fact that is the very reason Boyfriend and I started dating) but it has been several years since I taught and thought taking some classes would be good.  Not just for Baby, but for me to meet some other parents as well.  As predicted, Baby loved them and enjoyed watching the other kids around her.

She did get a little possessive with one of the toys and another mom asked me if she was in school.  When I told her no, she kinda shook her head like "Oh that explains why your daughter won't share" but other than that the other parents were really nice.  Baby was the youngest of the group, the next youngest is 20 months and it was so fun to see how much he could do from being in classes for a couple of months.

I know that it isn't necessary for us to take classes since she isn't cognizantly developed enough to actually know how to swim but it still a great experience for the both of us.  The teacher was impressed by her bubble blowing skills and that she has no fear of the water at all and enjoys going under the water.  I'm excited to see how she progresses, who knows maybe she will be the next female Michael Phelps.
