Mayor Bee, while he likes the water, loathed having water touch his head. Yeah, another sensory issue. You couldn’t even coax him to blow bubbles, and he’s been in the water since six months old. Washing his hair was an absolute nightmare; I really hope the neighbors don’t think we are doing some funky form of discipline on him.
We soldiered on and enrolled him in a new private swimming school. He’s been in mini camps for the past month and a half. And sometime around the second camp, the impossible happened – he went underwater. AND DIDN’T SCREAM. In fact, he did it again, a few more times, plus blew some bubbles. Holy F’in Bleep. It was a beautiful moment.
Then, an EVEN MORE AMAZING thing happened. The supervisor came over and said he accomplished the goals in this camp and “graduated”.
