A Proud Mommy Moment
Today was the last day of Girlie Girl’s swimming class.
When it started 10 sessions ago, she was told that if she wore her colored wrist band until the last class, she would get a special prize. This was not an easy thing for her to do. There were times when it would get in her way or get dirty or just didn’t match her outfit. However, she was determined to get that prize.
When the time finally came to cut off the band, she was so excited that she couldn’t stand still. They brought out a huge treasure chest and she was able to chose anything from it. There were pretty stickers, sparkly jewelry, cool toys, bubbles, and coloring books.
Know what she picked?
She decided to get something for Baby Bug instead. I know this will sound silly but I almost cried. I was so proud of her! She’s really becoming a very thoughtful young lady.
BTW, you wouldn’t believe what I did today (maybe you would).
Since we got in from Maui a little later than anticipated, we were running behind schedule. DH decided to drop us off at the pool and take Baby Bug home for her nap. In my hurry, I accidentally grabbed Baby Bug’s (size 18 months) swimsuit from the suitcase before he left. OMG! I told Girlie Girl that I was sorry but she would have to try and squeeze her butt into it. She said, “It’s okay Mommy, everybody makes mistakes.” Believe it or not, she was able to get into it. I was going to post a picture but I’m too embarrassed to let you see how I allowed my daughter to go to swim class. The other parents must have thought I was crazy! Thank goodness this was the last class and I’ll probably never have to see them again.
