Murphy's Law of Swim Lessons

After months of resistance and suffering, I canceled Raphaela's swim lessons starting the month of November.  This evening, the first part of the class elicited the usual chorus of "No," and then for no discernible reason, something switched in Raphaela's head.

She participated.  She swam. She jumped through the water obstacle course with no hesitation and sheer joy.

At the end of the half hour, I gave the teacher a look, she returned that look and said, "Let's not spoil the moment with words."

Of course, this is Little Miss Swimmer's second to last lesson before we go on "break."

Always leave them asking for more...

I wouldn't sweat it. Take a break. Maybe do a mommy and me music lesson instead this year. Or you can find a kiddie ballet class. Really, you can go back anytime.

But stick to the break. It will be good for both of you.
