Erma measures time with her fingers. “Mom? How long until swimming lessons? This long? Or this long?”
No matter how close together my fingers are, her reaction is always disappointment. Swimming lessons cannot come fast enough.
Sigourney was also excited about her first ever swimming lesson. That is, until it was time to put her toes in the water.
The second the swimming lesson was over, Sigourney burst into tears. “I want go swimming!” she wailed.
But she’ll have to wait until next week (*thislong*) to put me through this again.
