What if the Hokey Pokey IS What It's All About?
Jack and I did the hokey pokey at baby swim lessons this morning while Harry swam with other level 2-ers and was happier than he is anywhere else. The kid loves water.
He smiled the whole time
Jack and I were more pensive.
I was waiting for him to have the mother of all tantrums, actually. Like he did at our once-a-week indoor lessons. He freaked so bad our first week of indoor lessons that we got out of the pool and haven't been back (Harry goes happily by himself, and Jack and I watch from the bleachers). I decided I didn't want to make him scream. I think he hated the loud, cold pool. He;s a great swimmer when we go to the pool outside-- maybe indoor swimming is not his thing. Not worth a half-hour of fit, that's for sure.
He was great today (thank goodness because we have lessons everyday for the rest of the month), and he loved jumping off the side. I, however, am either super wussy or a huge drama queen. How can the weight of one tiny toddler hurling himself at me cause me to do a Matrix-style back bend?
Hope you had a great weekend. We're still enjoying ours, lazy-style. I'll be back with more pictures soon because we had a killer time being extremely low-key and eating. A lot.
