Day 58: Here Fishy, Fishy

So, a friend of ours keeps inviting us to go swimming with her and her kids. But the thought of getting both kids ready for that and then getting them back out, showered, dressed, and all after just wears me out. So, I keep declining. But I know the kids would love it.

Tonight after dinner, HH suggested that we take them swimming tomorrow. Having him there makes it much more doable, but our Saturdays are always so jam-packed already. So, I said, "How about we go right now?"

And we did.

This was my first time swimming while pregnant ever. I've heard it's fabulous and feels great. Maybe it's because I was sort of squeezed into my normal suit (I don't have a maternity one, but my other one felt fine out of the water), but I did not find it super comfortable.

Fortunately, the kids had a total blast and watching their fun and listening to their giggles made it all worth it. And, of course, provided me with a Joyful Moment. I try to still come up with fun activities and they do a pretty good job of entertaining themselves when I'm too tired (like when I passed out on the couch after lunch for a good 45 minutes today), but it felt really good to do something they love this much.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments in doing something you or someone you love really loves!

My joy was being sung "Happy Birthday" to first thing this morning by David's family. And finding a birthday cake on the table when I came back from the fruit buffet.
