It starts in your heart; this swelling of incredible joy that just makes your chest beat faster and faster. Energy quickly surges through your whole body and it's like an electrical shock paralyzed your face in a never-ending smile. That's what being a proud parent feels like. That moment when you are in awe at the strength of your child - whether that strength be demonstrated physically, emotionally, or mentally - you are in complete awe.
When I was in college I taught swim lessons at a renowned swim school, prided on the guarantee that we can get your child swimming on the first lesson. The method is very very intense, but very effective. I taught children ages 6 months and above how to swim. However, it's one thing to teach someone else's kid how to swim with this method, but when it came to my own I wasn't sure if I had a strong enough heart to do it because it is so demanding. I was worried Evelyn would grow afraid of me and the water, but it actually proved to do the opposite and I am 1,000 times over grateful that I was able to work with her, that she trusted me, and that she is rocking it! I am so so proud of her! For crying out loud, the girl isn't even two and a half yet!!!
