The Deep End

I don’t consider myself a fearful person, or parent. So I was caught completely off guard at Sky’s new swim class. She graduated to the next level up and while she seems more than ready for it, I’m not sure I am.


It’s silly, but when I realized her new class takes place in the deep end of the pool I sort of fell apart inside. I managed to keep a smile on my face, but I was so scared for my little munchkin being in the deep end. The silly part is…all her old classes took place in the shallow end of the pool, which was still over her head. To Sky, it’s no different. She’s swimming in water over head, just like she has been from day one, nothings changed for her really.

She’s loving it actually…she is so determined to do things on her own. She just wants to be left alone to forge ahead as she see’s fit. And, with this class the teacher is no longer in the water with her. He’s directing her from half way down the lane and letting her swim up and down the lane all on her own. She’s in heaven the deep end of the pool swimming like a fish!

I feel like ever new stage is sending us further into the deep end of the pool…life. So many big milestones and changes ahead this year, and I’m trying really hard not to let my mommy heart be fearful about it all.
