Swimming Lesson Meltdown(s)

We first took Big P to swim lessons when he was 6 months old. It was a “Parent and Me” class that basically involved bopping around in the water and singing silly songs (and motivated new moms to get back in the gym ha). Since then we’ve enrolled him in similar classes two more times […]
