Taking O to gymnastics class for the last time was bitter sweet. She’s been going for at least the last 6 months and we’ve had so much fun watching her. It wasn’t until recently as Jake got bigger that we realized we needed him to have an activity as well. The days of him asleep in his car seat while she jumped around the gym are long gone. Now that he’s almost 17 months he’s up an running around looking for things to get into!
When O was around a year old (before Jake was born) we took her for swimming lessons. She loved being in the pool and it was a whole lot of fun for us. We were able to spend really close, quality time with her in the pool and it was a great experience! So, we decided we’d enroll both of them in swim class. Turns out the class is for children 6 months to 3 years old. What’s awesome about this is all 4 of us will be in the pool at the same time! What a cool family activity, right??
The downside? You’ve got two 30-something parents wondering how we’re supposed to show up in the pool looking like this? Of course, The Boss, has nothing to worry about. She’s got a great body and should feel good about how she looks. She doesn’t think this way and is going nuts looking for a “one piece” bathing suit. Me on the other hand? Like I told her, guys are screwed. The one area that a guy cares about (his gut) can’t be covered.
Yeah, our bathing suits cover our asses and thighs.
What guy cares about his ass and legs?
So like I told her, my nastiness is hanging out and there’s nothing I can do about it. The only saving grace is I have lost 10 lbs. and am planning on losing more. Isn’t it funny how a little public display gets you motivated to get in shape? O and Jake aren’t going to want to get out of the pool because they’ll be having fun. I’m not going to want to get out of the pool so people don’t see my fat ass. Oh well…
Before I leave you I want you to check out this little video I did of O’s last Gymnastics class. Towards the end she gets me on the trampoline and I have a little crash landing. Enjoy!!
