I think we have reached the end of swim classes at the YMCA. I have to admit, I am very upset. Miss Porgie seems to have lost interest in the classes. She likes being in the water, climbing out of the pool, and giving all the other moms high-fives. However, she doesn't actually like to participate in the class anymore.
During the lesson, the babies are supposed to perform several different exercises - kicking while on their backs, kicking while on their bellies, floating in the water, etc. Unfortunately, Porgie has started crying during each of these activities. The only activities she enjoys are the songs and jumping from the side of the pool.
So, when swim class ends next week, I am not going to sign her up for another class. This disturbs me for several reasons. First, I feel like Porgie is already bored, so taking away swim class will only intensify her fussy attitude. Second, this class was the only way for me to meet other mommies.
I do feel like I have forged friendships with two other moms, but both are going back to work in September. Although I would like to believe that we will continue our friendships, I know both women will be busy with their careers and families after September.
Don't feel sorry for my pathetic ass. I am looking into joining a MOMS group, so Porgie can play with other babies and I can meet other moms.
