Like a Cat or Fish?

My sister and I suck at swimming.  We both hate to go underwater or get dunked.  It's embarrassing to admit that I still hold my nose when I jump in, if I jump in at all.  It's a running joke that Molly and I are like cats in water.

If you splash me, I will hiss.

Haley, on the other hand, has taken to the water like a little fish.  She would spend the entire day in the bathtub if I let her.  Our water bill is outrageous thanks to her turning on the water faucets as often as she can get away with it.

Last October, I heard about a swim class for 2-year-olds where the parent didn't have to get in the water with the child.  Bingo!  I couldn't sign up fast enough.  Emler Swim School turned out to be awesome.  Haley was the class pet.  Her teacher, Ms. Vilma, told me she was a "natural".  As a cat mom, I couldn't be more proud!  

Our future Olympian in action:
