I'm All Swimmed Out

I had a double dose of swimtime today, and I don't swim much to begin with! Aiden had swim lessons this morning at the Y. Normally it's his special thing with daddy, but Todd was busy roofing my mom and dad's house, so I got to fill in. We had a blast. They play all kinds of cute water games to teach them different aspects of swimming. Aiden would make me put my chin in the water too and blow bubbles and then tell me how good I was doing. I was cracking up. When we were in the locking room afterwards, he had to potty and I told him great job. When I sat down to potty he asked me what I was doing and I said I had to go too. He said, "Give me a five, mom." I guess he thinks I'm going through the learning process with him. He's been in underwear for a few days now and is doing great. (We didn't mess with any of it on our two trips, not worth it!) He doesn't want to wear pull ups at all. The only downside is that he is still pooping in the underwear. NOT FUN for mommy and daddy! He promised me he won't do it anymore and says, "I pwomise, I only poop in white toilet!" Edited to add: He pooped in the potty today....I did everything short of back flips to show him how excited I was!

After an early lunch, all 5 of us went swimming at Indian Mounds Pool. It was a pefect day for a swim, the water felt refreshing. I actually got my hair wet. (gasp!) I had so much fun going down the water slides with Noah and playing with the boys in the water. Noah and Drew went off and did all the water slides and diving boards. Noah had no fear at all. It's hard to believe it's the same boy that was afraid to get his face splashed a few months ago. I loved just floating in the water watching them have fun. I got me a little sun, a little exercise, and some fun memories with my family. Yep, a good day.

My oldest was the same way. Last year he was afraid to wade into the water up to his waist and this year he is throwing himself in. I love it! :)
