We are so stinkin’ excited for this summer. It’s the first year that our toddler can actually express that she wants to go to the pool or beach and know what those things means and naturally, she’s been begging to go often. I keep telling her that it isn’t warm enough yet, but she’s not having it. She keeps telling me, “It is Mama! It is warm.” I feel so bad that we can’t go right away, because as a water lover myself, I know the excitement that she has over this.
The baby on the other hand, really has no clue what in the world her sister is talking about, but what I know is that her love of the water is going to have her extremely excited once the time is here. Luckily, we only have about 2 more weeks (weather pending) because we can get to the pool!
As the same time, I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m also a bit nervous. Because Andrew works hectic hours, it means that I’m going to be alone some of the with both girls around the water. I’m gearing up though to have all my ducks in a row to make sure that this summer with two littles goes super smooth.
Some of the things I’m doing is:
- Always try invite a friend. Two adults are always better than one and friends’ kids can play with my helping them to stay close.
- Make sure that our pool/beach bag is well organized. Doing this allows me to make sure that I can quickly grab what I need and less likely that the girls (Skibbles) can run off while I’m searching for something.
- Explain the importance of safety to our toddler so she’s able to listen.
One way I can ensure safety is my using the SwimWays Baby Spring Float. This is what we will keep the baby in, at least while at the pool. It’s a great introduction product for babies and water. Apparently it also makes a great toddler toy to run around in while in the yard. At least I know she’ll be occupied.
SwimWays wants you to know that as the leader in promoting water safety, they are responsible for the 5th annual National Learn to Swim Day on May 21, 2016. They also have a National Learn to Swim Day to help educate parents about things like water safety and the benefits you get when learning to swim.
We hope you’ll join us as we head to the pool see! See you then 🙂
