My son (who’s 4) went along to his first swimming class yesterday.
He’s been to the swimming pool with my wife and I since he was a few weeks old and, as far as I knew, he couldn’t swim. He enjoyed being in the water, splashing and playing, but he couldn’t actually travel from A-B without assistance.
Then yesterday I come home to find him excitedly waving a badge at me. Turns out he’d swum a length! On his own!
See, I thought I had him pegged. But I didn’t. He was way better than I ever knew and all he needed was a bit of encouragement.
You’re way older than 4, are you just splashing about?
