Yes we went for swimming for two consecutive days. Now, being in Weekend class has more disadvantages. Finding the “right” date for replacement class is never easy at all.
After swimming for two days, we concluded Yvette actually doesn’t mind to swim but then her mood must be right to swimming.
On Saturday, her mood was fantastic, so the swimming lesson was fun, enjoyable and we could see she could do a lot of things requested by Wendy.
However on Sunday, her mood was really bad. Spending good 10 mins on crying and keep rejecting requests!
Awwwww… this is not the way to learn my girl!
Look at all these pictures taken by D.
She was totally very difference from last week! She was so H.A.P.P.Y to swim today!!! Even instructor Wendy could tell me she’s so much ready today!
I have been discussing with D whether should I withdraw Yvette. Think my worry was uncalled for! Still, I need ensure she don’t regress anymore. This term ends after next week and I need to make effort to bring her to the pool.
I better make effort.
I also received second certificate from this school. Perhaps, changing of instructor and missing one term do have a big impact on Yvette. She doesn’t seem to pick up more skill after learning for a year!
Before the lesson starts, Yvette was sitting on the wood plank observing the swimming lesson before her slot. I thought she will be happily enjoying the lesson but then I was wrong.
In the midst of the lesson, when was about her turn to swim to Wendy, she was crying furiously and helplessly. She didn’t want to swim at all. I couldn’t stop her crying too. For the next 10 mins, she just sat near the pool without doing anything.
This wasn’t a good sign. I will let her stay on for one more term to decide whether I want to stop her swimming lesson till she is much older.
D needs to work today. So I am the one that bring Yvette for her swimming lesson.
Yvette displayed apprehension today. Everything that she was asked to do, she kept telling Wendy she didn’t want to. And there was a point of time, she even almost tear she need to swim from me to Wendy and from Wendy to Me again. To encourage her, we shorten the distance that she needed to swim and this made the tension much softer.
Now I know she had already regress a lot after missing out one term of swimming lesson. It’s like we are starting all the basic all over again. The only blessing was, luckily she was just a toddler.
Things will be in place once she build up her confidence again….
