Final splash course this morning; girls all sad to be finishing, but pleased that new sets of lessons start next week, with Ams joining the afternoon sessions too now. On the way Maddy and i talked about how she was getting on and she decided to ask to do her 10m badge. Anyway, Fran was equally surprised to be taken off to do her 50m, which she nearly managed on her front but grabbed the side 4 times, so didn’t get the badge. Then it was Maddy’s lesson and SHE got taken off to the deep end to do a 25m badge, which astonishingly, she did! She looked absolutely shattered at the end, having slowed to an almost stop 2/3 of the way down, but she got there and all the mums clapped her!
Fran had been watching and was a bit hacked off about this, so she asked if she could have another go so she got changed again and did another 2 lengths on her back and that time she got it!
So proud of my girls and also of Amelie who ended the week so much more confident and grinning from ear to ear as she pootled about.
Josie has excelled herself today by yelling “Stop it Ammi, you stupid poopoo donkey.” Like it 😆 😆 Amelie was quite nonplussed by it, but it is no more than her just deserts as she has been driving the big two wild by calling them poopoo 🙄 Josie can also now use the words “isn’t” “haven’t” and “me” in meaningful context, which is quite clever for 22 months. 🙂
Spent the rest of the day with family; Amelie and Rowan got on famously, i got to cuddle Ella lots and Josie was very taken with her too. Now i’m home – and i’m pooped.
