Swimming Like a Fish

Sunday is swimming day. Sunday is also becoming my regular sleep in day.

Riley's swimming lessons have always been something that Phil and Riley do together ever since Riley started when he was 6 months old. They get to spend some quality time together and it also gives me a bit of time to myself which as we all know sanity time is very important.

Riley missed the first term this year and lost a lot of his water confidence. It really made me see how important it is to keep up with the lessons. For us not much changes in 6 months but for a 2 year old its like a whole new world.

So far hes been to 3 lessons this term and its made the world of difference. Today he came home and told me all about it, how they sang The Wheels on the Bus, blew bubbles and how he went under the water to get the ring at the bottom of the pool! Hes at that great age where he gets really proud of himself for doing things and so he should.

His favourite bit by far though would have to be the spa pool. When the lesson is over Phil takes him into the spa pool and he loves it! After that theres always a warm shower to look forward to and I think that would have to be a close second.
