Swimming has always been my favorite sport. I lived in the water for most of my childhood and I want the same for my boys. I knew from the moment they were born that I would dunk them in the water as soon as I possibly could :). We did the usual mommy and me classes when they were babies and the time finally came for some real swim lessons so last month we enrolled Tman and Jbird.
We started swim class last month and we go every Monday. The boys love the water so I knew it wouldn't be too difficult to get them excited about this. Tman is really into it because he is not afraid of the water and loves to dive while Jbird loves the water but is always anxious about leaving my side. We are in a set up where Tman is in a class with 2 other kids while Jbird is in a class with 3 other kids but all the parents stay in the water with the 2-year olds.
I of course made a big deal out of the first day of swim lesson as I do. I am a huge proponent of celebrating the kids first anything. We left Bean at home with grandma so that we could focus on our big boys.
