The other day we completely enjoyed hanging out at the O'Malleys pool. There was a "mommy" party, consisting of three preggos and others (those who are not preggo) and all our million kids. O was a bit shy at first until his oh so wonderful buddies A and J showed him some brotherly love, consisting of a lovingly smack from J, and off he went to swim.
I cant tell you how much I enjoy the fact that O can now swim. Honestly it has been the best $$$ by far that we've spent this summer. It has allowed him such a sense of freedom that last year he wasn't able to enjoy. I am still required to swim though, at least for the first 10min, until his shyness wears off, only then am I allowed to enjoy the company and conversation of adults.
