Parent & Tot Swimming Lessons

By Kate |

Last week I was so giddy about my son’s swim lesson breakthrough that I shared several pictures of him enjoying the pool. My daughter doesn’t want to be left out of the fun so here are some pictures from lessons with a 20 month old.

A parent and tot swimming lesson involves…

Cuddling Kicking Practice

Blowing Bubbles

Touching Mama’s Nose

And… Swimming!

I look forward to seeing your photos.

    Outdoors too, how nice! Our lessons are all indoors and it’s just not the same as being outside in the summer sun.

    I can’t wait to try that with my son. He is a bundle of energy though and we are waiting till he is a bit older. Looks like so much fun!

    She’s just adorable! The summer my daughter took lessons when she was a toddler was so fun!

    That’s adorable! My little one is afraid of the big pool. We’re working up to swim lessons.

    Yay for swimming fun! At least she is smiling and having a good time! My daughter screamed her little head off during every single one of her lessons last summer.

    How fun! We aren’t doing lessons this summer but I think we will in the fall. My son will finally be old enough for real lessons and I am thrilled because he loves the water. Carlie will be 6 month so I will be doing the infant lessons with her!

    Oh my gosh, how cute is she! My four year old won’t put her face under like that 🙂
