Today

We went to my cousin's 12th birthday party today. It was a blast, so nice to see family that we don't see very often, despite living not TOO far away. An hour, maybe. Life is just so busy.

I felt a little bit like crap because this period is really bad. So I decided not to swim with everyone else, but ended up having to jump in anyway. Kaylee decided to take off her floaties and run unexpectedly over to the pool and jump in, while everyone was eating hot dogs and hamburgers. I ran over and jumped in, grabbing her out pretty much right after she jumped in. She coughed once and was fine. I didn't have time to even be scared because I knew I was right behind her and could definitely get her out before she drowned. But I worry about her lack of a healthy fear of drowning... We definitely have to do swim lessons asap. And I want to have a serious talk with her about it but the party atmosphere and lack of nap made it even more unlikely that it would have any affect on her. I mean, she's 2. I can't ask her to understand the seriousness of the danger of drowning.

So yeah, other than that, the party was great. The ice cream cake was soooo yummy. And my mom's fiance's parents gave Kaylee 2 new dollies and a play high chair, stroller, and crib for them. Kaylee is just tickled by everything. Dolls are her favorite thing ever and she was saying, "it's time for your nap... it's time for your breakfast... it's time for your walk!" I've never seen her focus and play one game for so long! She's such a little mommy. I don't know where she gets it from. Not me, I played with dinosaurs and matchbox cars when I was little, hahah.

When we got home, Kay took a late but much needed nap. Then I had a fight with one of my friends which sort of launched me into a depression. It's not too bad but I feel really out of sorts. I'm about to put Kaylee to bed, and I'm pretty bummed that her schedule is ruined. Hopefully I can fall asleep right away and I'll feel better in the morning...

Awwww... hope you feel better soon :) And not ruined... just 'pre-empted' ;-) It'll all work out... I promise :) My 2-yr old is obsessed with water... it is scary, isn't it, when they have no fear?

Yeah, I know it will will get better and be ok. A reminder is very nice, thanks. =) And oh my gosh, it is so scary! My goal is to teach this little one to swim before the next one comes along! Lol.

My now 5yo has NO fear of water, never has, and it's terrifying! He was jumping off diving boards at 2, and has been going off the high dive this summer. He's finally swimming pretty well, but man, he still scares the heck outta me! So, what I'm saying is, I feel your pain on this one, momma!

Gosh, so much for my hope that she would grow out of it by next summer when my mom is putting a pool in her backyard! It's good your son knows how to swim at least though. We just signed up for swim lesson so hopefully they do some good. =)
