We celebrated my brother-in-law’s birthday at his house last Monday night. Just a block from their lovely home is their clubhouse with a pool. So before we headed to his house, we stopped by their clubhouse and took a dip.
Dindin was just so excited to go swimming, as you can see from her photo above. The sky is clear and white and the water was warm–it was just the perfect setting for Dindin. She donned her green two-piece and excitedly pose for the cam before plunging in the water.
Below, I took a video of Dindin while floating in the water with her floaters. You may say that well, it is common for children to enjoy the water, that is just not so. For a child who hates even taking a bath because she doesn’t like the water getting into her eyes and mouth, this is already a remarkable feat. She showed much courage here.
When we first put on her floaters, she just held her Papa’s hands. Eventually, she let go one hand at a time until she decided that she will stand on the floor of the pool. Finally, she got more confident and realized that she could lift her both legs and that she will remain afloat! Because of her realizations, Dindin got to enjoy the pool so much that day! Thank God! We hope to be able to do this again this week. 😀
