Letters to my son - Water Babies

To my little fish,

Every week your daddy takes you to swimming lessons, he has been doing this with you since you were 4 months old.  Give or take a couple you've not missed many lessons.  Every week you both are up and out the door by 7.30 on a Sunday morning!  Over the past year, your daddy has also started taking you to the local swimming pool in the holidays and on Mondays and Fridays work permitting.

These pictures are from your 4th lesson at Water Babies back in March 2012!

And here you are nearly 3 years later showing me your skills in the local swimming pool.





I am bursting with pride right now.  

Love you little man

Love Mummy

  2. That's a brilliant achievement! Swimming is such a vital skill. It's shame they don't do classes like that round my way.

    1. Thank you, yes very proud. We mainly put him in because we leave near the sea so I wanted him to have this life skill from an early age.

    1. Oh Becky you'll love it. They do go through 'wobble' stage but it's worth it to watch them just jump in and off they go
