Fast forward to the present day. I just wrapped up Stella and my third "Parent and Me" swim class. They start them as early as six months so I figured waiting until 1 year would pose no problems. Stella loves the water and usually takes new things on fearlessly so I was super excited for summer to come where I could share this time with her. We all know things don't always go as planned.
I checked out a bunch of swim schools and settled on one that had a great facility and no set times. This meant I could go anytime I wanted, without having to commit to a specific time and day. This was ideal for me. The first class she seemed really excited and was loving most of it until they had us put them under water. Nobody else seemed to mind that much except for Stella who was mad as a hornet. To make things even better, they had us do it again...and again. I was now "that parent" with the screaming kid in the middle
