Little Zoie has recently discovered that one of her favorite sport is swimming. She doesn’t know how to swim yet but as I’ve noticed the enjoyment she experienced during the family reunion of my in-laws over the weekend proves that she loves the water.
As the month of November started, one of the members of the Cristoria family, my in-laws, thought of celebrating the birthdays of all November celebrants in one day. The plan was an overnight stay at a private resort in Pansol, Los Baños and of course, the kiddos love that idea. So, when Little Zoie realized that it was time for swimming, she never stopped reminding me to pack her swimsuit and her floaters.
That very late afternoon weekend, the family set-off to a one-hour drive to our private pool destination. As soon as we arrived, even though we haven’t eaten supper and it was raining, it didn’t stopped the kids to dip into the pool. No worries, it was a hot spring pool.
Hubby was not around during the night swim because of work, so I’m thanking my sister’s-in-law boyfriend in looking over my Little Zoie. I was busy taking care of baby Matti.
I made my daughter rinse at 10pm which she instantly disapproves by crying a lot. She has a habit that whenever she grows tired during the day, at night time, in the middle of the night she’ll be crying and crying for no reason at all. Well, that means she’s too tired from the day’s activity. She slept very late because she and her cousins keeps on playing ’till midnight. Good thing, she didn’t cry during her sleep. Before sleeping, she made me promise that she can swim as early as she wants the next day. I did give her my word so she can be excited to go to sleep.
Hubby arrives from work the next day which made Little Zoie woke up. As soon as she opened her eyes, she asked if she could swim already. She agreed to eat breakfast first and me and her daddy and baby Matti can join her in the pool.
That’s what we did after breakfast.
Little Zoie practically didn’t leave the pool. She only get out of the water whenever it’s time to eat or she wants to pee. It’s not only her but her cousins as well. It was a family time so we just let her be. Let her enjoy her time in the water along with her dear cousins, and titas and titos and lolos and lolas.
As time to go home arrives, the little kiddos didn’t seem to need to be called out of the water twice. They hurriedly follow us, go rinse and pack our stuff away.
