You can see his busted nose pretty good in this photo. Poor kid. At Gymboree and at swim class this week the teachers have all been asking what happened. It's healing up now, and most of the scab on his nostril is already gone.
I got an email from the swim school about registering for the summer session. Weird to be thinking about that already... but it seems they offer more frequent classes in the summer (2-3x a week, or more if wanted) which might be nice. I sometimes think that 30 mins once a week isn't quite enough to really practice much, and feel bad that he's not getting any practice pool time in between classes (maybe when it warms up a bit we'll start heading over to Monika and Audrey's more often to take advantage of the community pool...? =P ). Not that I or the classes are trying to drill him on swimming, but just to work on things like him learning to kick or move his arms as precursors to actually swimming.
I've also started looking into local Mother's Morning Out-type programs. I don't know that I'll sign up for one, but I'd at least like to know the options and cost. Part of me feels "lazy" for wanting to hand off the kid for a few hours once or twice a week. But then I remember that I work at this "job" about 150hr/week and so a little break here or there would be well deserved. Unfortunately internet searches aren't turning up much of anything (how is it possible that not all of these programs have websites??? *shock* oh wait many of these are church-based with sweet-yet-often-not-computer-savvy older ladies running them), so I may need to actually turn to *gasp* the yellow pages or something.
