Swim Lessons Part I - My Fake Reason of Why the Twerps Are In Swim Lessons

I signed the boys up for swim lessons. And in this post I will give you my Mother of the Year reason why.
However the truth will follow in Part II -- I just have to keep up good appearances here. So this story is the one I am sticking to. This child has no fear of water. And by no fear of water I mean:
A. He cannot swim
B. He jumps in the pool
C. Without a life jacket
D. And sinks
E. And I kinda don't notice
F. Cause I am takin pics to preserve these precious moments
E. And to blog
So I have to throw my camera to Eldest Twerp and jump into the pool like an awkward uncoordinated mother who has no skillz I am Michael Phelps going off the high dive with skill and grace and a couple flips for good measure -- to save him.
So did four other people while we were at the pool. Why? Cause MT CANNOT swim, but he thinks he can.Therefore, these lessons will hopefully bring his skill to the level of his confidence.Cause I am starting to feel like this....
God love him.And his Twerp?
Cause he finally conquered his fear of water. Despite the fact that his mother tries to act like a mean shark and chases him out of the water. I have no idea why he acts the way he does.
But he also is taken lessons -- although he is much more into lookin at the girls and sayin... The beach is over there -- All the single ladies? When we explained he had to be in the WATER with the weights....he thought that was the most ridiculous thing he had ever heard. But alas, they are in swim lessons cause I am a good mother who cares for the skill and well being of her children. Amen.

Up This Afternoon: The Real Reason. (Please don't judge me.)

Those pictures are so cute. but that last one made me really laugh. He is just so adorable as they all are. I agree kids need to learn to swim if around water at all.

Hey thanks for the informative post, Swimming classes should be something that a person takes up when young. Well I guess an adult can also take up swimming lessons. Never too young to try!
