A Fish is Born
So...back to the swimming milestone. If you don't remember from a previous post, B was terrified the last time we took her to the pool. So when I got the below letter (with some modifications/revisions/deletions to protect MIL and our privacy....yeah....I'm a blogger...what privacy?!) I was very happy.

Subject: great day!!!
"What a great time we had! B was awesome! First, we sat in the water and she played with a toy. Then, she learned to smack the water and make it splash. Then, I pulled her along so she could float and kick her feet -- well, she never quite kicked, actually she kept her knees tucked under her!!! But she smiled! Then she held onto the wall and held herself up -- did great at that!!! Then we played, "Alligator, alligator, jump in the water!" where I was in the water in the lazy river and she "stood" on the side and jumped in! We ended with Ring Around the Rosey." It was a great time!
B did real well in daycare, too. The ladies said she never cried and she was playing when I got there. She smiled so big when she saw me!!!! I enjoyed my time.
Anyway, it was the greatest day!!!"
Is it okay I was also a bit sad, when I got the above email?? I wish I could have seen B do all these things. Don't get me wrong, I'm 100% on board with MIL doing these classes with B. I'm so thankful. But...I am a tad bit jealous. Oh the trials of tribulations...and guilt...of a working mom. ::sigh::
