Growing Out On A Limb

Summer is …

… the pool!

Boy, do I ever miss the days of last summer – on maternity leave and spending three or four afternoons a week at the local pool.  Yeah, we had it real good.  We still grab that opportunity every chance we get but on the weekends, of course.

Oliver is not very interested in learning to swim yet but he has a blast jumping in and out of the kiddy pool, throwing the ball around, and splashing with other kids.  He still isn’t very keen on getting his face and hair in the water but I see him watching the older kids do it and can tell he’s working up the courage.

Emery has less fear of the water than Oliver, which I suppose is natural.  He watches Oliver pretty closely and figures he should be able to do all the same things, which means mommy has to watch him very closely – if he topples over he can’t get up on his own.  I feel like he should be wearing something float-y but I’ve never quite figured out what and I really don’t mind watching him at this point.  


Hubby makes being a dad look like such terribly hard work.  🙂

But being a mommy while at the pool is pretty fun too.  

Help!  I’m being attacked by two extremely adorable sharks!
