I’m embarrassed to say that none of my kids can swim. It’s actually quite sad since we live on a lake and “swim” every summer.
Here’s the evidence that I FAIL as a mommy LOL
I’ve decided that I will make an effort to show the boys how to swim; even though I can’t do it very well myself. Yes, it is truly the case of the blind leading the blind.
We found a few noodles in the condo and the boys happily took them with us to the pool yesterday. They also gained a lot of confidence by “swimming” and relying on the noodles to keep afloat.
Theo was floating with 2 noodles and I took one away promising him that he wouldn’t drown. He protested when I explained that taking it away will NOT cause him to sink. As soon as I retrieved the noodle he went right under the water. OOPS Let me explain. A few minutes before that I did the same thing with Alvin and the idea went as planned.
I pulled him back up and he shouted!
“I TOLD YOU I NEEDED THE NOODLE! I WENT UNDER THE WATER.”
Lesson learned. lol
