Meet the Children

Beat the Heat! Swim!

April 10, 2015

After taking a break from the swimming pools for a couple of months due to the period of cold winds, we hit the pools again when the heat is back on!

It feels so good to be back in the pools again!

Swimming is one of the few outdoor activities that we love doing together as a family. While I may be extremely terrified of the cold water in the pool, I’ll go along with it as the children loves it – rain or shine, day or night!

The usual takeaways from our swimming time was Blake constantly jumping into the swimming pool and Nakayla being carried around while she practice her kicks.

As I stopped bringing their kick-boards along with us (the children hardly use it), I’ll carry Nakayla in a floating position all around the pool while she kicks away. When I get tired, I’ll have her holding the sides of the swimming pool and continue practicing her kicking. This offers great relieve to my tired arms, but the fun doesn’t stop for her!

So given our usual routine, I naturally had no expectations for something out of the norm – Go swim, play with water, wash up and dinner!

But Nakayla surprised me this time!

She actually went all out and followed Blake in the jumping craze! You must be wondering why I’m all surprised, right?


Nakayla was exposed to swimming at a younger age, and while she started out okay, she somehow developed a dislike for it. This meant that for months, almost a year, we had to coax her into jumping into the pool. And by coaxing, I mean putting her on the sides where she’ll just sit herself down and whine until you take her hands to bring her into the swimming pool, instead of jumping into my arms.

But on this very day, she jumped! On her own! Over and over again!

All her fears flew out the window that day!

Isn’t it amazing? One moment the girl was absolutely terrified of swimming pools, the next moment she’s all giddy with excitement to play in them!

After a long time away from the swimming pool, Nakayla conquered her fears of water and surprised all of us! Children are so full of amazing surprises, all awaiting our discovery! This particular experience with Nakayla showed me that all fears can be conquered in an instant if one has the will to do so. I couldn’t be more proud of my little girl! #FrisoMoment
