Making it through swim lessons

Thursday, July 11, 2013

The kids (and I) have made it through 4 swim lessons and have 3 more to go. Now...that doesn't sound like a whole lot, but...it feels like we have been doing them for an eternity. Every morning I have to will myself to get everyone ready and there. I will admit that things have imporved from day 1, but there is still a lot of whining on my son's end. He whines for probably a total of half of the class. It amazes me how they put these 2 years olds under water. My son went completely under for the first time yesterday. He did it again today. The teacher did it because I wouldn't be able to go through the motions of putting him under water. It just doesn't feel right. It made me nervous, but I know it is for the best. Both my kids had tubes in their ears, so I have it engrained in me to not get ANY water in their ears! I know that is part of their issue too becuase it has become what they are used to as well. They just aren't used to water in their faces. It has been stressful for all involved. I will feel so much relief when we are done.

Eating still hasn't been great unfortunately. I ordered a Nutribullet though and got it in on Tuesday evening. I made two shakes yesterday and they weren't all that bad. It is definitely an acquired taste. The spinach. I didn't play around much. Just put in what I had. Spinach, berries, water. I know it will be a good way for me to get in my veggies and fruit. I am hoping that I can get through swim lessons and really focus my energy into reestablishing my good habits. I know I can do it because I did it just a few months ago. Then I got lazy. It is so easy to be lazy. I am excited about the Nutribullet and think it will be helpful in getting back on track. It's so easy! No excuses!

My sister is coming up this afternoon for a visit. I am really lookking forward to that! We always have a good time. I am hoping she can watch the kids tomorrow morning and maybe I can get a jog in. I don't want to lose ground on that front too!

    A trick to get kids used to water in their faces is to give them a straw when they are in the bathtub and let them blow. You cut the straws a little shorter as they get used to it and eventually they have a very short straw and no problem with the water in their faces because they are having fun blowing bubbles in the water.
