Free at last! Swim lessons are finally over....

Clear back in September, I posted about enrolling the kids in swim lessons so they wouldn't drown. At that time they were excited to spend their Tuesday evenings splashing about in the pool, as they did all summer.

Not long after that things took a very quick turn for the worse when suddenly the water was just "too cold" and they balked at the idea that they "needed to learn to swim". After all, they already could! (WRONG).

Considering I paid more than $200 for these lessons, I was determined to get my money's worth. And I did that by forcing them to go to every. single. lesson. And it was a nightmare.

Screaming and crying and endless "I don't need to learn how to swimmmm!!!" from their rotten little mouths....for MONTHS. Never again. The end.

Let's be done with this crap....

Last night was the VERY LAST swim lesson and I couldn't be happier. I may be happier than the kids, now that I don't have to endure our Tuesday night ritual of complaints followed by threats of consequences for being a little snot. Ugh, the stress. And of course as the lesson was wrapping up, Clifford exclaims "Mom, I wanna be in swim lessons in the Spring!"
