As I watched Reid in her swimming class on Sunday, I noticed that she could propel herself 1.5-2.0 metres without touching the bottom. I suppose we’ve been closer and closer to this point over a number of weeks but all of a sudden, Reid was swimming. Okay, okay, Reid didn’t go from not swimming to swimming in an instant but I think that I had mama-blinders on that helped me to ignore this evidence of Reid growing up. It hasn’t been that long since she wouldn’t get her face wet but now, it’s honest-to-goodness swimming that she does. I can still remember like it was yesterday when Reid learned to walk (or at least I see the photos and the scenes seem to be very recent, except my hair was short). On the one hand, I’m delighted that Reid is mastering this new skill. I admire how she focused on improving the skills that kept her from passing Preschool B. But I’m not ready for her to learn to drive a car and that seems to be the next step after learning to swim. Is it too late to pull her out of swimming class?
