Apr. 28th, 2008 @ 10:35 pm My day of reckoning has arrived.
I put it off as long as I could, but due to the hard deadline of my first swimming session with Victoria being tomorrow night, I had to purchase a new bathing suit tonight. You know how some women with body image problems look in the mirror and see someone much larger than reality? I appear to have the opposite problem. I look at these bathing suits and I think, 'whoa, that's going to be waay too big' and then have to try and squeeze myself into them.

I did manage to find something decent, I hope. I've been wearing boardshorts for about 7 years now, and they used to be really hard to find, but apparently they are all the rage now. I had my choice of colours and lengths and everything! I've finally progressed from bikini top to tankini top, because, quite frankly; 'oh, you'll lose all your baby weight in a snap if you're breastfeeding' is a cruel, cruel lie. Not to mention the 30 extra pounds I was toting around before I got pregnant.

So here's to hoping I don't get harpooned and we don't get too much chlorine up our noses tomorrow night!

My girls are two and I haven't started them on swimming lessons yet. They totally love the water and have no fear, so this is good and bad at the same time. I really got to get them into some private lessons. What if they fall in? I need to know that they can get to the edge safely and keep their tiny heads above the water.

Umm...parents have to go in the water? Uh-Oh. I am like Shamu the whale. How embarrassing. I don't think I can do it.
