I’m pretty sure he was thinking, “swimming sucks mom”.
Okay okay, so it looks like all he did was hate it, but he actually did better than last time.
He stayed in the water for 30 minutes (instead of 20). Not bad. But, not good being the fact the swim lessons are 50 minutes. He went under TWICE. Not by choice, but hey, it was part of the lesson. When he wasn’t whining, he did really good with the kicking on his back.
However, when it was time for all the kids to “jump” (which means jump off the side of the pool to their mommy’s)…..he made his escape. I set him on the edge of the pool so he could “pretend” to jump to me and the second he got out of the water……he RAN to daddy who was sitting and observing. That was it. The end. OVER. I tried to get him back, but he wasn’t having it. So to avoid making a huge scene I let him be done. Afterall, 30 minutes isn’t terrible right? I have to admit, even I was kind of getting tired of the pool after 30 minutes.
I am REALLY hoping this swim lesson thing gets easier as the weeks go on. May 2nd, is a long time to have to deal with this.
