I have an admission. Ready? I’ve never taken Bean swimming. In fact, no one’s ever taken Bean swimming, so ya know, Bean can’t swim.
For a whole host of reasons, it’s just one of those things that hasn’t happened and until recently it has never been a problem. However, now he’s in school, one that boasts its own swimming pool, that soon he’ll be expected to jump into and know what to do, at least to a degree, the guilt and PANIC is starting to creep up.
Obviously, in the run up to Christmas, with thousands of other things to do, illness, poorly relatives and general chaos isn’t the time to get Bean’s swimming trunks out of the drawer, and taken the tags off finally. But I know come the new year it’ll be something I’ll have to get on top of somehow.
So rather than sinking to the floor and having a bit of a panic attack, can you tell I don’t like water? I’ve decided to look up ways that’ll make the learning process as easy as possible, for both of us. I’m thinking if he’s a bit worried about it, I could use these fun dive sticks available from Zoggs, now I know he won’t be diving anytime soon, but I thought I could make a bit of game with them, or use them as markers for him to swim to. I’m not getting ahead of myself though, I’ve also spied a Zoggs Float Suit is great for building confidence in the water, which I think will be absolutely brilliant for getting him used to being in the water.
Now, next thing, do you reckon they do adult sizes too?
