This boy can swim!!!!!! There is no enough exclamation marks in the world to show my excitement.
Ok, my daughter can't swim more than a yard or two independently, but she is only five. Still I'm pretty proud. From what I can see she is star pupil in class.
Its a good thing I love this boy. He gets to swim everyday. He never goes to childwatch at the pool, because he refuses to. I don't want to create problems at church Nursery so I don't push it at the Y.
And poor Ikey! He has never been in the pool. He has never been in any pool! I didn't let him go in my mom's pool this summer when we were visiting. There is no way I can watch a not quite two year old and hold an infant at the pool, so Ike is never allowed in because I don't want him to know what he is missing. He could go to childcare, but he also doesn't like it. He was almost always crying when I picked him up, he has stranger woman anxiety. Not stranger man, just stranger woman, he is one of my momma's boys and does not want other women holding him. So instead he just sits in the stroller and watchs the kids in the pool. Its faster anyway, it doesn't take 5 minutes to check him in and 5+ minutes to check him out. This picture doesn't show it but he honestly seems happier at the pool than in childcare. He sometimes naps, and usually only cries about 5 minutes out of our hour and half adventure.
Poor kid! I often feel a tad guilty he doesn't get to swim. He is starting to really love splashing in his bath, so honestly I can't take a chance of him knowing the fun of the pool.
The other day a little 6 year old asked me his name. I told her his first name, and she said woah that's a big name for such a little baby. Five letters is not a long name, so I guess she meant a grown up name, and I guess I agree which is why I always call him Ikey.
