Who knew that when kids get cooped up and whinny , just take them to the pond and let them throw rocks and sticks in the water , they will do it ALL DAAAAAAYYYYY LONGGGGGG . We went to the water falls today and watched them bust their ass a bit on the slimy rocks .
Cant get to pick up nothin in the house but they will pick up every rock and stick in the yard and throw it in the water .
Got scared they would bust their head open so we left and went to a nice pond with a gazebo over it and my girl promptly sits down in the ONLY pile of goose chit with in 100ft '' facepalm'' and Then I realized my kids are like drunks when they get around water . I know too many parents who have lost kids same age as mine to drowning .
As much as I push the edge I sure am a border lined over protective parent .

Hey Mobile, you taught those rascals how to swim yet? I mean really swim? Seriously, do that. It could save their lives one day and even if it doesn't they will enjoy water so much more for being comfortable around it. Still use floatation devices and all, but swimming skills are like extra insurance.

Working on it . Problem is , most places we take the boat out has no beach to speak of , the closest lake with a beach is closed most of the time due to people taking chits while swimming ''e-coli '' . They will jump off the boat , or fall which ever comes first and they will kick some so were getting there . Right now they practice in the bath tub lol .

Wife takes our daughter to swim classes at the YMCA. She is 2 so they are mainly fun baby swimming stuff. But they do teach to kick their legs etc. I think it's $60 for 8 classes? IIRC

Oh, I thought you were just supposed to toss then in water and let them figure it out...

Depends on if you like your kids or not.
