If ever there was an ‘I Did It Mummy’ moment, it was today. Those that know Ava, know that she’s not exactly a water baby but today my little girl swam 5 metres, on her back, unaided. It may never happen again but this little lady’s Mummy is very proud!

First swimming badge

A first swimming badge may not seem like much but when you consider that when I first took Ava swimming I couldn’t get her in the water without screaming (a water baby she is not), let alone joining in the lesson, this is a huge achievement for Ava and one for me too. Both my husband and the lady that ran the swim school had tried to persuade me to wait until she was ready but knowing how head strong my little Madamski is (it’s in the genes!), I didn’t feel it would make any difference and we would still be faced with the same issue in a year’s time so I and she persevered and Ava is now the proud owner of a Grade 1 Duckling Award.
