For Mommy Monday I was going to tell you all about Finns's first swim. But then instead, I went to bed. At like 6:30. Ever have a day where you're just overwhelmingly tired and everything else can wait? That was yesterday. Maybe it was the heat and the toll of a little guy who has been cranky AF for three days, but Momma needed a rest.
As for the first swim, to be honest it wasn't the magical experience I'd dreamed of. My little guy who LIVES for bath time was underwhelmed by pool time.
However, in general he was pretty cranky that day so it could have been that. Getting ready for his first swim was monumental, the right floatations devices, sun shirt, sunscreen, swim diapers, hat and towels. In the end what he liked best was being held by Mom or Dad.
Especially when it was just all too much and he had a rest on Momma.
How was your first time swimming with your little one? How do you get them used to and excited for the pool?
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
