Callum started swimming lessons in the fall.
Now, this is the boy who loves the water. We go swimming a ton. But this is the boy who, at his second ever swimming lesson, I had to sit at the edge of the water and hold his hand because he was so scared. Not of the water, but he didn’t trust the instructor would keep him safe.
We talked constantly about being brave. About trying even if he was scared. About how we’re still right there for him.
This is how far he’s come, and I’m so damn proud of him.
