Last week I read a great post from Kat at Beau Twin’s all about her future plans for her twins and it really gave me a kick up the backside to get more bits and bobs planned for Lottie. When Maisy and Bella were younger we used to get up to all sorts clubs, groups, playgroups etc everyday we had something to do, since they have both started nursery everything seems to of dropped off and now me and Lottie just go to one playgroup a week, which is great but I often feel bad and that I could be doing more.
So as I said I finally got on with is and book Lottie in for some swimming lessons, it was so exciting, it was actually the first time she has ever been swimming, which I know to most sounds really late but I can’t take all three girls swimming at the same time, not only would it be an absolute nightmare but the pool has a 1 adult to 2 children rule so I’m not allowed to. Anyways Tuesday morning we headed off for her first lesson.
Here she is ready so get in the pool! You’ll have to excuse how blurred the photo is but madam wouldn’t stay still at all so this is the best I got.
She started off shaky, it was a whole new environment for her but the instructor just said the first few lessons will be about her getting happy in the water, she clung to me as tight as she could for about 10 minutes but didn’t take her long to start splashing and even quite enjoying it towards the end she was laughing and kicking her little legs like the other children, I was so proud.
I’m sure next week she will be the same nervous to start and then get into the swing of things, I’m looking forward to seeing her confidence grow each week and its so fun to be doing something just me and her.
Here’s the little pickle afterwards, very cheeky little grin happy to have her post swimming snack I think!
