3 Things I’ve Learned From My Daughter Taking Swim Lessons

When my kids play sports, I tend to learn a lot about myself.The good, the bad and my inconsistencies.My youngest has been swimming now for a little over a year and the first thing I learned about myself when she began swimming…
1.An old dog doesn’t want to learn new tricks.

My sweet mother attempted to give me swim lessons at our local YMCA when I was a little girl.After the first day of lessons and a horrifying water going up my nostrils experience, I quit!Stick a fork in me because this shriveled up girl was DONE!I told my daughter about my life shaking experience and she’s convinced that I should either take swim lesson or she would teach me herself.We’re all familiar with the saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Well, this old dog doesn’t want to learn new tricks!I was done the day I took one leap out of that pool to exit and I’m still done today.

2.I have helicopter mom tendencies.

Really don’t think there’s any explaining with this one.If you’re not helicoptermomish…your kids are the one’s I see running around the grocery store without supervision 😉

3.Don’t beat myself up over what I didn’t do with my older kids.
It’s easy to get stuck in the regret of what I didn’t allow my older kids to learn. What’s done is done and what they were able to learn and participate in, was sufficient. Next.

What’s In My Daughter’s Swim Bag

This week my youngest will begin swim lessons at a nearby swim school.  Sadly, in our family my husband is the only one that knows how to swim.  My two oldest can barley swim which to me counts for not being able to swim.

The swim school she’ll attend has swimming lessons all year round and I’m excited about that because it will help her become a strong swimmer.  While making sure she had everything she needs for swim class I think I threw in everything, but the kitchen sink.  In the video below I’ll share everything she has in her bag.  If you think I left anything out be sure to let me know in the comments below.

Fall College Care Pack

Sending my daughter a Fall College Care Pack. Sharing a little bit of home and letting her know I’m thinking about her makes me feel just a little bit closer. She loves when I send her packs and misses them when I don’t. What do you send in your child’s College Care Pack? You may know someone away in college if you don’t have one of your own. Send them a pack and let them know you’re thinking about them.
