Matilda and I have had so much fun on Friday mornings. I don't think we ever stopped smiling and giggling in a lesson. After three days at work and not spending much quality time with Matilda, having a swimming class to go to really brightens my week up and the guilt of not being with my gorgeous girl goes away.
Matilda has improved so much in her Turtle Tots lessons since she started at 8 weeks old. I cant believe it. She has such a good time and loves the water. She loves swimming and is so confident in the pool. From holding onto the bar at the side of the pool and moving down the side of the pool herself, to jumping off the side and swimming under the water. It really is the highlight of my week.
I have paid for my lessons, which was £105 for the term so this isn't a paid review. It is worth every penny and you really do get a lot from it for the money.
I have recently had to seek more help for my anxiety but the one time that I feel close to my baby girl and relaxed is when I'm doing the swimming class. Honestly. These are memories that I'm going to treasure for a very long time.
Turtle Tots often do a free taster session, so take a look on their website and facebook page for news about these and give it a go.
