One month until Christmas Day.  Taking my oldest for his swimming lesson proved to be more of a headache than usual and that in itself is a feat.  It should be illegal to allow mothers to have to drag two children to a swimming class when only one is swimming.  This leaves the other in dangerous territory, especially when he is under two, unable to swim and has a love of jumping in anything wet, even if it is a large Olympic size pool.
But this week was different.  Unlike the usual headache my oldest son decided to make it worse by needing “sit down toilet” during his class just after my youngest had done his “sit down toilet” in his nappy and just before he was doing a special swim award.
The result smelly fingers, a sore bottom and no swim award. 
At least the pool didn’t have to be cleared out due to an “accident”.
