I have briefly mentioned that Little Man was starting swimming lessons this week. He was so excited but also very nervous. I haven’t taken him swimming as much as I should have and he isn’t very water confident. Little Man is scared to go under the water and he hates water on his face. I am really hoping when he gets more confident in the water he will be able to go under and be a real water baby.
As a child I loved swimming and I really want both of my children to be the same. This is partly the reason for getting Little Man into swimming lessons. I would love him to be able to swim, however I just want him to get used to the water and get really confident.
I am able to sit at the side and watch him and to start with he kept waving at me and shouting me. I kept telling him to concentrate. The lady had the children walking up and down the teaching pool, then they had to swim with floats.
He seemed to really enjoy his lesson and can’t wait to go back next week, which I am really pleased about. He’s still not happy about wearing the swimming cap though.
