Some of you may remember that last Sunday I was really pleased because for the first time my grandson, who has always been petrified of water despite us having a pool) swam with armbands. Well my husband just called me to the pool to show me that one week later Harry is actually swimming WITHOUT his armbands. I am so proud of him!! Picture included from proud nana!!

Hi oldchem, that is really a milestone in your grandson's life. Well some children are really like that at first the are petrified and be afraid of new things but when they got used to it they will surely enjoy. your grandson is really lucky having you as his grandparents since you are very supportive with him and you always there to encourage him to do new things.

I am more proud of him than anyone else could be as I have just witnessed my 8 year old grandson swim without arm bands, a thing I can't do to this day and I am 68.

aww.. he swims like a dolphin already! I can't believe he was petrified of water before. It sounds like it was such an amazing experience seeing your grandson finally reached his milestone . I don't have grandchildren yet, but I'm looking forward for my daughter to swim as well

Conquering his fear of water is what I applaud more. It's what we can all learn from. Swimming becomes easier once that's done. Great!
