I took all five grand kids (soon to be six) swimming yesterday. If you know me, then you are aware that they are fodder for my children's books.
The day was glorious because all were getting alone so well, until, one set of swimming goggles broke!
Then tears and temper broke loose because he could not possibly swim now that his goggles broke.
Trying to be my best Mimi, I explained that he could still get into the water, still have fun, and still enjoy the day. Well, that didn't work.
So, I had the other four go ahead and keep playing to leave the crying one-to cry.
And crying he did, for about 15 minutes. Then he jumped into the water to play with everyone else.
Later, he came up to me and repeated my same words back to me about being grateful to just be able to swim, goggles or not.
I guess sometimes, kids do listen,,,,even when we think they don't.
