TELL US WHY YOUR KID ROCKS!CLOSED! Congrats to our winners: Chelsea, Jennifer M., Nise, Patrice A., and Catherine D!
Happy Universal Children's Day! I don't have many close friends or family with kids who can be considered "children" right now (outside of my cousin who has 4 boys under the age of 5...yeah, he has his hands full, but Christmas is going to be hilarious). Anyway, it bums me out a little because kids are rad. Even the kids that are kind of jerks can be rad. As a former swimming instructor, I connected with a lot of my students. From watching them perfect their backstrokes, to encouraging them to take the jump off the high board or finally convincing them (really just one of them) they didn't need to pee in the pool to be cool; not much has been more rewarding than seeing those kids succeed. I miss them . . . they're probably like 20 now. However, I did receive some good news: My best friend's sister gave birth to her first child a few weeks ago and I am over the moon with excitement about being his "aunt" and possible swimming instructor. If he's anything like his mom and dad, he's going to be one funny kid. So let's celebrate your kids and all the kids in the world today with a little giveaway!
