So I think a little bit of anxiety is a good thing. At least for me. It helps me to be more productive, have more excitement and learn new things.
We started swim lessons 2 weeks ago with my darling little girl and well since then my anxiety level has sky rocketed. Like to the moon and back. It is through the iSwim which is similar to the ISR swim training program and well lets just say it is intense. The very first lesson...under the water she went. Talk about a panic attack.
Now...I did know what I was getting myself into. And I do know that these swim lesson are important and necessary. Living in Florida means we are surrounded by water and we are in said water probably 9 months out of the year. And since our little woman loves the water so much it was time.
The screams, the shaking, the not sleeping, the poor eating....all of these things that suddenly changed in my girl though are making it hard. Very hard. Until today...
Today's lesson it was like a light bulb clicked in her head that "Hey...this isn't so bad." Now don't get me wrong there was still a little crying...a little whining for her "blankie" and a death grip around my neck prior to giving her to the swim instructor. But once she was in....She listened. And she just whined a little. No ear piercing shrills that made me want to dive into the pool after her. So I must say...my anxiety level is back down. Phew!
Now fingers crossed tomorrow goes even better. Prayers are appreciated :)
And PS I do apologize for the major lack of posting. You can see what's been keeping me busy over at www.michellecphoto.com . Getting a business started takes some serious work! Although I am loving ever minute...but it has taken away from my time for crafting and creating. Because of this I have decided for the time being...hopefully not too long...I am going to do some post on life as a mom. I hope that I can include some easy recipes etc that we have created. If you are interested in maybe guest posting please let me know! I'd love to have you! And thank you as always for all of your love and support and for reading! Have a wonderful day!
