Kira started AquaTots today. I can’ t even tell you how nervous, excited, freaked out, proud I was of my girl. Chris and I searched high and low for a swimming program for toddlers/kids and boy did we find a great one. We would have liked to have gotten her in the water at a younger age but she’s in now and loving it!!!
Here’s the condensed play by-play…
We were about 2 min late getting into the water because little miss needed a potty run at the last-minute. But once the job was done I walked her over to the pool, the instructor smiled, asked her name and I watched my girl become a bit more independent….
I’m now up in viewing deck, nowhere near her and she’s not even looking for me. Jim, her instructor was amazing!! Daddy and Titi (my sister) are behind the cameras. Yes Kira was the only child there with an entourage!!
Look at that face…(sorry for the blurred images but daddy’s hands were a bit nervous too). This is after her first lap across the pool!!!
My sister was calling her Kira Phellps by the end of the session…
This was the first time my child has been under the supervision of another adult in her (and my) life. She was amazing!!!!
I feel like we’ve started on a new journey and I’m so excited and blessed and privileged to be along for the ride.
Next week…first day of nursery school!!!!!! I don’t know if my heart can take all this excitement!!!!!
