Kingsley: Swim Ring

Friday 31st October, Halloween Day

For the first time Kingsley has accepted and liked very much being buoyant in a swim ring. All previous times we’ve gone swimmies, he has actively rejected the swim ring, arched his back, tensed his little legs and screamed blue murder. He will not be placed in the ring…

But today, a very different child. I came out of the poolside dressing room to find Kingsley and Rio merrily splashing about and to my astonishment, Kingsley was thoroughly enjoying floating in the ring! Suspended in the water by a large pink blow-up device, Kingsley was free to kick his legs and flail his arms. Till this day I was always carrying King on my hip when we swam. This was progress!
