the things we do for our children

for the past 10 weeks we have been taking antonio to a weekly swim class at our local YMCA. he absolutely loves the water.

the kicker is that it takes us just under 20 minutes to get there, i spend about 20-30 minutes afterwards getting him showered and dressed, and then another 20 minutes to get home. totaling about 70 minutes.

the class is a whopping 30 minutes long.

sometimes i wonder if it's worth it. it seems like such an ordeal for a measly half an hour in the pool. but then we get there and i see his big smile and hear his laugh upon getting into the pool, and it is more than worth it.

it amazes me every day the things we find ourself doing just because we love antonio so much.

Hey! Your posts stopped showing up in my reader. I wonder what happened. :( I look forward to seeing them there.

Anyway, I'm participating in a giveaway from notes from my nest, and I wanted to give you the chance to participate with me. The details are on my blog. Basically, all you have to do is write a post about what you know now about motherhood that you didn't know before you were a mom, then visit the post I linked and tell me about it. It was definitely a meaningful post for me to write.

That's just love.

There so many things I wouldn't do if it was just me, but the smile on our kids faces are priceless and just precious.
