mommy and me swimming class (oh daddys too)

I have been dying to get Ardo and I into a mommy and me class. I searched the internet and came up empty. I wanted something local, and everything that was available was at least 30 minutes away. I figured if I wanted a mommy and me class to be successful it needed to be local so that way it doesn't become a chore with traffic and all that nonsense. One day in the mail we received our local newspaper. I mean our VERY local newspaper, I don't know what made me decide to look inside seeing as I usually use the paper for trash or give it to my sister (cause she's weird and likes to read the paper from cover to cover). While browsing and finding out our local Farmers Market has been a success I see what I've been waiting for - Parent & Tot swim class - I was so excited. Finally something for Ardo and I. Ardo as I've shared before LOVES the water so a swim class is a great way to learn a few techniques make a couple friends and have something for just Ardo and me. So I signed us up. I went the first Saturday not knowing what to expect, and Ardo did amazing. The only weird part was the first day there were a lot of kids. The class is from 6 months to 5 years old (yeah, I thought that was a long age range too) but most of the 5 year olds were screaming their heads off. SCREAMING, begging their parents to take them out. It was freaking out all the smaller kids. Ardo didnt care tho, he splashed and played and kicked. I was a proud mama when some of the dads were telling their kids "Look, that baby is much younger than you and he's having a great time!" I could have sworn I heard a 5 year old say "good for him." haha
Jerry was upset he missed for first class, so I let him go with Ardo to the second class. I guess this is the only upside to this weather, swim class in late September early October, but that's the only compliment this weather is going to get from me!



Tomorrow is our trip to San Francisco, I can't wait. I've been reading up on toddlers and plane rides, I hope he's an angel. Hope, hope, hope...

  5. Our daughter was 6 months old when she first went to swim class, all the others in our group were the same age and all went well.

    Glad you had a good time and hope the plane ride works out ok.
