I joined the young Mums and Dads today when they took their bambinos for swimming lessons.
There seemed to be 100's of them, but I imagine that's an exaggeration. (well it sounded like it)
Our Miss Tilly is quite at home in the pool but is learning to "Listen" to her instructor…. occasionally the attention wavers.
How lucky are these youngsters…
A little different to some of the children in Mexico City who were selling gum on the streets at that age.
Its a sobering thought if you ponder too long.
There wasn't swimming for babies in my early mothering… we just dunked them in water and they got on with it…. but what a good idea it is now, along with playgroup, pre kindy and music and movement…. I can't imagine how much busier I would have been with 3 under 3….
We then went on to an animal farm where a man milking a cow squirted milk at the amused audience, the deer tried to eat my expensive camera and the kangaroos muzzled your hands…but Tilly (who considered that I had been gone too long) enjoyed my company.
I've hit the wall today and tiredness has dampened the work ability…. I'll give myself a free weekend and then get back to it….
I have to book my flights…. its always difficult, you can't make a mistake… and
I have 10 days spare between Arizona and Dubai in February…. I just can't get my head around it… just where can I go? the brain won't function….. Maybe I'll just go to Morocco!!!! it's sort of on the way….!!!!
I've unpacked, washed and had time to look at the wonderful gifts I received.
