So off to swim lessons we went. As soon as I heard that Isabelle was assigned to "Jake", I knew there would be an issue. Isabelle loves everyone FEMALE and is generally a bit fearful of men she has never met. She remains shy in front of men, so when I attempted to leave her with "Jake" the waterworks came. Isabelle broke down. Insited she had to go to the bathroom (,although she had just gone), screamed for mommy and daddy (who were both present and watching her from afar). This lasted for about 15-20 minutes. Another female instructor/assistant came to her rescue and calmed her down enough to return her to "Jake". Isabelle finally realized that we were not leaving or coming to her rescue and no one had attempted to drowned her yet, so she gave in to "Jake" and went swimming with him. It was so nice that she finally found out swim class could be fun. Too bad she only got to enjoy it for 5-10 minutes. We'll see how tomorrow goes, but I'm hopeful that "Jake" has in fact won her over. We'll see......
At the Pool with "Jake" - why do I keep putting his name in quotations?
Adelaide enjoyed swim lessons too....she had a nice little snooze
