Today was a day of 1sts. Lo's 1st swimming lesson, & Ryder's 1st solo swimming lesson- no Mummy or Daddy just a couple of other kids & the instructor!Swimming lessons have always been Roger's domain, but we decided that I would take Lo, so for the 1st time in my adult life I bought myself a pair of sensible Mummy bathers. They are plain, black & practical & a couple of years ago I would rather have swam nude than be caught dead in them. How times have changed!Willow actually enjoyed her class, although she looks very serious in the pictures. We may make a swimmer of her yet!Then it was water-boy's turn. He was initially reluctant to get in the pool, but once he was in he spent the next 1/2 hour bouncing around after the instructor with a huge smile on his face. He listened & followed instructions most of the time & watching him do the little torpedo hands made me melt.
It was very strange us both being on the sidelines & watching Ryder do a class without us. I guess it is just something that we have to get used to... where did my baby boy go? sniff.
