You think someone would have bought me the soundtrack by now...
My girls are VERY good swimmers. Always have been. I remember sitting with Hazel in a hot tub in some backyard in San Rafael for her first swim lesson at three months. I had to buy them those floaty suits when they were two and one, because you can't very well come back from a vacation with a drowned kid. Destroys the whole; Wish You Were Here sentiments. And usually Erik is on the golf course and I would be by the pool. Now, I am ALMOST the mom who gets to sit on the lounge chair and read magazines or swim laps while the kids play a rousing game of Marco Polo.
In NYC, we went swimming almost every Sunday. Indoors at the West Side YMCA. We all had to wear swim hats/caps. There's video of Hazel impersonating a bulldog with half her forehead pressed down to her eyebrows.
I have no idea why I am feeling nostalgia for swimming. Must be because I went to the gym this morning. Ha!
