swimWhen my daughter was 7 months old, I enrolled her in a “Parent and Me” swim class. I needed something to break up our monotonous day of sleeping and eating. I was nervous and a bit afraid in the beginning because I didn’t know how she was going to react to being immersed in water, or if she might slip out of my fingers and swallow pool water. But on the flip side, isn’t this what swim classes are all about? It would be a good idea to introduce her to the sport and learn water safety.

Four years later, she is still taking swim class and she’s good at it! (Her swim teacher calls her a mermaid.) My husband and I were so amazed how well she picked up this activity. Neither one of us are swimmers, but seeing our daughter learn how to hold her breath, tread water, backstroke, and master the freestyle, definitely makes us very proud of her.

Through the years we have had many swimsuits. Since Miranda is in swim class year-round, we buy one new swimsuit every season because of the amount of wear and tear she puts these swimsuits through. For the last year or so, Miranda has been selecting her own swimsuits. This season she’s hand-picked Strawberry Fields one-piece swimsuit from the le•top Spring 2009 Collection. She likes the strawberries and flowers that adorn the yellow and white polka dot background. She also likes the big pink flower on the front. Most especially, she LOVES the hat! She can’t wear it to swim class but according to her, “This is perfect for when I go to the beach!”

This fruity fresh collection is available in stores now in sizes newborn to 6X. Use our store locator to find the nearest le•top retailer.
