Friday 31st October
A sunny and mild Autumn day in Dubai today was spent among friends, poolside. Today Kingsley for the very first time was dunked under the water and either swallowed water or held his breath. Don’t actually know but either way, he did not cry.
It kicked off after Camilla asked whether I was taking King to swimmies lessons and ashamedly I answered ‘no’. I then asked Camilla to show me how to dunk Kingsley under the water, to which she promptly jumped back into the water and coached an excited King to feel confident in being submerged. It worked!
Note to self: must must must take King for swimmies lessons. He’d love it, to be sure.
