Aquaducks

What daddy said after the class: “Now I know what to do with her when I take her in the pool”.  That was my sentiments exactly!

We had the coach to ourselves as there isn’t anyone else taking the 10am slot on Friday – YET. So we had all the toys and half the pool (the other half is occupied by coach David with other older kids) Really had great FuN! I guess taking up aquaducks not only will Ern learn how to swim in a safe environment and slowly learn water safety etc… MOST IMPORTANTLY I will have to be more disciplined in taking her into the water! I hope Ern will do better than me in water as I am more of a “land animal than water animal” I can’t really swim and till today I still can’t understand why my stamina in water is sooooo lousy! I can do like 10 or 15km run (hmm… that was before ern was born) not a problem at all but I just can’t produce the same kind of result in the water. I guess I am  not gonna be a Tri-athelete unless I really put in a considerable amount of effort and determination!

I remember days when I was in primary school my dad used to bring all 3 of us to Bedok swimming complex every Sunday and mum will tag along once a while. Whilst walking towards the pool dad will buy bread from the nearby confectionary. (It’s those BIG baguette kind) and we will eat it immediately after our swim. I will eat the inside (softer) and give the peel to my dad! I do hope that when Ern is bigger we will also continue to have such family bonding time as well.

So here are the pictures taken that day!
