What to muse about today?

November 17, 2012 ~ Teagan Swims!

on November 17, 2012

Today, at the last swim lesson of the fall, Teagan finally swam! Look at her go!!

No, she wasn’t happy at first, and yes, she had a float, but she finally did it!  So proud of her.

I got a few pictures, and then remembered to switch to video for the first time.  Stu came over with Ashlin and got to see Teagan do it again.

She was more comfortable in the water today, kicking, playing along, almost happy.  She’s not always happy to be in the water.  She would creep up and down the side of the pool while the other little kids were practicing, taking their turns.  And when the instructor asked her to hold on to the duck and let go of her other hand, she did it!

She still wasn’t happy about doing it, while she was floating on her own.  She definitely didn’t like when her mouth went under water.  But when she got to the wall, she was beaming.  She looked up at us, and saw us beaming.  All the other moms cheered for her too :)

      I know! Isn’t it awesome??

      We need to keep getting her in the pool… hopefully she’ll get in with her dad this Sunday.

        Maybe use that as a ‘bribe’ to continue good potty habits…no go if accidents occure.??? Just a thought. but hate to take away something that could save her life one day. Darn… can’t win for losing. HA.

          Yeah, don’t want to link potty training into swimming. We did marshmallows before, and treats, extra books or tv now… Sometimes she’s less concerned than others about it.

          Where as the swimming went very very well last week. Stu said that she didn’t want to get out! And swam! on her own! with a float, of course, but not clinging to someone so tight that she scratches their skin.

            Wonderful news regarding the swimming with Teagan. Before you know it, she’ll be doing it without the floaties and not wanting to leave the pool……ever. HA HA
