swimming!

tomorrow is the last day of swimming lessons at the ymca for the kids. so sad. they really loved them and as lame-o as it sounds, it gave us something to do on friday nights! alli and james loved them of course. last week alli didn't want to do anything the class was doing. she wanted to "bob" the whole time (duck her head under) which is funny because she pretty much hated doing that every week before. james is a little frog swimming. none of the other kids showed up in his class last week and his lesson is right after alli's so his teacher let us all just stay in and play. james has no fear (what a surprise) and was pretty much jumping off the edge.





i know this looks evil, but it was about half a second about he loves it.


i had a tiny turtle...




i'll just mention this quickly because i don't want to jinx it, but the potty training is going really really good. only a #2 accident on sunday while distracted by a movie. other than that she been sooooooo good for a week now! but i may not sleep tonight because she refused the pull ups even though she has been dry in the morning pretty much all week.

ok, so boring post. but aren't they always?

Guess I need to get going on the swimming lesson thing. Really had never thought of it before, I'll chalk that up in the lazy/bad mom category. I didn't even know they had lessons for a kid as young as James.
So go Wiggles! I love that Roman just doesn't sit and watch it, that he dances along as opposed to other shows. So go Alli! Just be careful, soon you will be singing along to ever song.

I spotted a Nemo! So fun that they both love swimming. Hopefully they like a mini pool in the backyard.. I think we could all go for some of that action

James does a great impression of the baby on the cover of Nirvana's first album Nevermind. Take off his swim trunks, throw in an American dollar bill and your good to go.

So fun! I've actually heard that babies are naturally good little swimmers and know how to hold their breath underwater for a few seconds. Weird. I may be lying too...you never know! Your posts are NEVER boring, p.s., because I miss you guys and I always wonder what you're up to. You're like a little super mom!
