Kicked out of swimming lessons...

I never thought of Kylie as a "trouble-maker" but apparently the swim instructor for our city swim class didn't agree with me :0 Well, it wasn't so much that she was a trouble-maker, but I guess her consistent crying for the entire 35 minute class, 3 days in a row was enough of a disruption :{ The instructor said she was too much of a distraction for the other kids and ashamedly, I have to agree. I just hate to be the mom of "that kid" that wouldn't stop crying. Kylie has always loved being in the water and was comfortable in it from a very young age. So, we thought swim lessons would be appropriate, but apparently she's not quite ready for this class. It was pretty heartbreaking to listen to my child's cries across an entire city pool. I guess we'll continue to just play in the water and make an attempt at official lessons later. Here are the pictures that I thought would be included on her scrapbook page of my "first swim lessons." I guess those pictures will come later . . . And check out her painful expression on the 2nd photo down, it's a heartbreaker!

I have to admit, this post made me laugh. She's such a happy girl there must have been something that bothered her about swim class... maybe she knew the water could possibly be contaminated. :) I am sure she'll love just playing in the water even more then classes! Amy

Mike and I got a kick out of reading this! Your cutie pie must be needing to spread her joy elsewhere!
