Yesterday I took Nick swimming for almost an hour. A kid had pooped in the rec pool so we went in the lap pool - it was kind of cold, but he was awesome and didn't cry. He liked it! He slept 3 hours after that and 9 hours last night. Today I took him back to swim. The kid pool is kind of nuts. There are kids jumping, splashing and throwing stuff. Where are their parents? Yea, I don't know. We went in the lanes next to the kid pool which are deeper and I walked him up and down the lane. He put his head back today and really enjoyed it. He is taking his nice long nap now! While I'm there, alone, people come up and tell me stories about when they started swimming with their kid, etc etc.
Today a lady told me if I let go of him, he'd float, because it is innate. Well, I'm not ready for that yet, even though I sort of believe her. She was normal and nice. Another lady comes up with a kid who looked really annoying and asked me if I was breastfeeding. Wait What?? Really? She could tell by his skin. And she was going on about it. This is when I need to have another language ready and pretend I don't speak english. But how do you tell the nuttos from the normal nice people? Yesterday I was making a mommy friend before my friend Jen came to the pool with her little boy, and that was fun! But whoa, today taught me the lesson to analyze the questions you are getting asked and break into another language quickly and move away.
In any case, swimming might be a daily thing. He enjoys it and so do I!
Being more conscious and working about eating a little more, here was my day today
Oatmeal with 1 TBSP almond nutters, some oat bran and cinnamon
Kashi with cranberries and mini chocolate chips
1/2 a powerbar on the road
Gardenburger chicken kind on 1/2 a La Tortilla Wrap
Spinach Fritatta on a piece of whole wheat bread
For dinner: Stuffed Portabellos & homemade Black Bean Burger w/ some kind of veggie on the side
Doing better! Less nutters !
