Swimming

I had GRAND plans.

"I will bring Shean Wenn swimming almost everyday", I announced to the hubs before Shean Wenn and I flew back to KL.
He protested slightly, "Isn't she too young? Isn't the water too cold?"
"Are you sure she can swim at such a young age?"
"What a worry wart! Of course she can swim. One is never too young to swim", I quipped and beamed.


So I bought her a swimming suit. I looked everywhere for a suitable one. Bikinis or a one-piece suit? I opted for the one-piece suit afterall. I found it in Mothercare and it was on sale. I was happy, I tried it on her to see if it will fit, it did.

I even bought her the swimming diapers - those that will not soak up water and be bloated when she goes wading in the baby pool. All 12 of it in a pack.

I packed them in the suitcase and waited to come back to warm and humid KL and jump into the pool with her.

And 3 weeks ago, I even bought her a swimming float. Tested her out on her seat (it fits!).

It's been one and a half months since we came back and the total number of times I have brought her to the pool : ZERO!

I am such a "hero".

("Mommy, is this what swimming is all about? It feels just like playing, but with a big float around my waist, it's abit restrictive to my movements, but I think I like it!")


("Mommy, this is fun!")


And look at how happy she is in her float. Now, imagine her in the pool in it. I think my husband need not worry at all about her being cold. With the rate I'm going, I hope to bring her to the pool at least once before we return! Or else I will need to think of what to do with 12 disposable swimming diapers.

mom2ashley : YES YES I was there! Were you lunching there too?

siew : Yes, I am the queen mother of procrastinor. :P

I doubt I can finish using it. It (the diapers) says it's suitable for 7-12kg. I can pass some to SY and let her pass to you if you want.

OK, better teach her swimming early. Or risk learning it as the only adult in a pool full of 5 year olds =)

Praveen : You sound like you are talking from experience. Aren't you?

**Clap clap** Congrats congrats! Another feather to your hat. :)

Now, all there is left are SCL for freestyle, butterfly, backstroke, and perhaps life-saving!

Actually, I had the same problem as you (being in the pool full of 5yo's).. and I was only 7! :P :P
