Do you go swimming with the kids when they go to swim parties or stay on the sidelines?

I am always the only mom having fun in the pool with the kids. What gives?

  • Ughh... I love to swim. Maybe some Moms are so self conscious of their bodies that they don't want to swim? Certainly not me! If it's hot...I'm jumping in! Then there are women like my MIL who spend 3 hours on their hair and makeup and don't want to destroy it in the pool. Hey, to each their own!

  • We drop our kids off (only our oldest has been to any) and pick them up later.

  • anything my kids are doing, i join in. i can only cringe when i go to the pool with me girls, and we're splashing and playing, and i see a mom walk in with her kids with clothes on and a book. makes no sense to me.

  • My 4 year old can't swim well yet, so I get in and my hubby and I take turns. He wears a floatation outfit, but I still get nervous. With the older kids, they can swim, so they can go crazy.
