B got a chance to go swimming with her cousins recently she was so excited, but so nervous. B is the cautious, I don’t think that’s a good idea, kid. She’s the first one to remind others that what they are doing could be dangerous. So she was a little concerned when Auntie handed me a life jacket so she could get in the pool w/the cousins.
B “mom is this safe”
Me ” I wouldn’t let you do anything that wasn’t safe”
B “you’re getting in right”
Me “If you want me to I will, but you’ll be fine. Look you can sit on the step until your comfy”
B “I’d like it better if Shea was here” Shea is her swim teacher
Me “I’ll stand on the steps”
She spent 45 minutes swimming around. I was shocked she even stayed in when the cousins got out. At one point she told me she was just like Ariel. Love this kid!
