Footloose and Fancy Free
We’ve been eating dinner outside the past couple of nights and then Larry and Peyton will get in the pool while I give Shey a bath and put him to bed. (Have I mentioned lately how good that baby is? No, well, he is a perfect angel.) Lately though, Peyton has been getting braver and braver, getting in the pool by himself, most of the time fully clothed. He’ll splash around on the steps while we sit outside and watch.
Last night, we told him he had to eat before getting in and he hurried through his meal. He heads towards the stairs with all his clothes still on. We told him to wait for his bathing suit, but Peyton wasn’t having that at all. The next thing I know, the little boy who often whines for us to help him get dressed and undressed is bare ass naked and heading for the pool. It was so funny and cute, we just let him be.
Due to his newfound desire to be in the water at all times, we’ve hired a swim teacher to come to the house and give him lessons next week. She comes five times for 30 minutes each and it’s only $200.00. I thought it was a steal, especially since she comes to the house. She even works weekends and nights. I’m really curious how it will go. Peyton runs hot or cold. He’ll either love it or throw the biggest fit.
