Yesterday was our first day of swimming lessons. I'm really not sure what I thought was going to happen, but I was optimistic because the kids were very excited about going. My kids are two months away from being 4 and 5. But of course, they have their own personalities and they are very close to each other, almost like twins.
I had to leave because there is no way they would stop crying with me there. After quite a little fit, B decides he wants to go back so my friend walks him back to the pool.
So, neither one of them got in the water, but they both stayed for the entire class. And for that, I am extremely proud of them. I know firsthand that water is terrifying. That is precisely why I want them to learn to swim. I do think C might do better if B wasn't with her. I think she is more mature about it. A lot of times we do treat them like twins, but there is a year there. And it is times like these when it shows. Hopefully today will be better. I'm praying that they at least try to get in the water.
