Oh my gosh you guys. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen that we’ve picked up Monday night swim lessons. We loved our Saturday slot, but life gets in the way and we just couldn’t make weekends happen anymore. BUT. The best part about Goldfish is that they are literally the nicest about canceling. Trust me, I know. Between having a newborn and a wily toddler, taking on a new position at school, and the busyness of fall, I have made more than my fair share of “we aren’t going to make it today” phone calls to Goldfish. The best part is that all you have to do is call, even one minute before your lesson starts and cancel if you cannot make it. Once the lesson passes, you get a credit for a makeup. You can then use that makeup for another class or for family swim time! And they are seriously so nice and answer on like the second ring.
Since the last lesson, E has picked up quite the vocabulary. She now says 2-3 word sentences and we are loving all she has to say about the “poo”. But, I’m also very glad that I am behind the glass while she’s chatting to the instructors about how “dad in poo”. So awkward, that toddler language. She loves her time in the pool and we now have a hard time getting her out, which is a far cry from her first lesson (she’s so little!).
I just love how far she has come from 13 months to 22 months at Goldfish. She freely goes to the instructor, splashes said instructor when it is absolutely not appropriate, refuses to go on her back, plops up on the ledge, readily jumps back in, and just giggles the whole time.
I’d say that’s a pretty solid way to spend a Monday night. Now, we just need to get sissy started!!
