Grace would be a gold medal winner. In the summer the minute practice is over, that thing is off and the bikini on. Like faster than she can do a 50 fly. Crazy fast. She says it is the tan lines. I also think she likes to make the distinction between work and play.
I am grateful my kids like the pool beyond swim practice. We are known for pulling “all-dayers”. Being there from the time the pool opens until the time it closes. My kids get exercise, it is cheap and my house stays spotless. Can’t beat that.
I just ordered the girls new practice suits and “fun suits”. What confuses me is that my 12-year-old still loves the Dolfin Uglies which really live up to their name. I find them to be quite unattractive. They do hold up forever but wow, someone got rich creating a mismatched suit out of childlike prints that tweeners love. (and why wasn’t that someone me?) I also ordered her a two piece from Hollister. I am not sure whose body those were designed for but I would be a XXL. If they made my size. I guess she is a little bit grown up and still a child at heart.
Summer swim team starts today. A summer filled with fun and friends. And fast wardrobe changes. See ya at the pool.
