Monday Is My New Favourite Day!


My lovely friend, J and her 15 month old daughter decided it would be fun if Little One and I accompanied them to swimming today. The rec center that we went to is off-island, but it makes for a great day trip. Swimming with the babies, lunch and shopping!

I was hoping Little One would love the pool. She's a water baby and loves swimming in the bath tub. She also loves the beach! Let me rephrase that. She loves the water at the beach, but not the sand. She looks at me with a disgusted expression on her face. Kind of like, "Ewww! Mommy! What is this gross stuff between my fingers and toes!?!"

I love, love, love swimming and really hoped Little One would love swimming too. To my surprise, she took to it so naturally. She was so cute when she put her head under water and kicked her little feet! She had so much fun! I loved that the babies got to swim in a heated salt water pool. The salt water was much better than the harsh chlorine I grew up swimming in at our local pool when I was a kid.

I have a feeling that Monday is going to be my favourite day of the week now! Some of the other moms and their babies from our play group were there too. Fun times!


On a totally different topic, this song played on the drive home. I don't know why, but whenever I hear Sass Jordan's "I Want To Believe" I get this bittersweet feeling in my heart.

What an amazing pool! I've never heard of a salt water pool, except for the Sutro Bath's in San Francisco, which burned down in the 60s. http://www.sutrobaths.com/explorebaths.shtml

I LOVE THAT SONG! I remember seeing Sass Jordan singing live back in the 90's. She always looked so great and still does!

J:
Just checked out that link! Very cool! I'd never even heard of that place before.

Yes, I really like the fact that it's not chlorine. Little One really enjoyed it. Of course, she had a few gulps of water. Oh well! She didn't really seem to mind. She's such a little fish!

I remember as a kid, all the pools we went to had chlorine. Growing up, I always associated swimming with the smell of chlorine! LOL!

I love Sass too. I remember seeing her perform at a mall in Quebec in the 90s. I was a big Sass Jordan fan. Gotta support local talent! :)
