Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Splish Splash! Phoenix at the Pool!

Splish Splash! Pool Days! We're in that phase of parenting where everyday Phoenix discovers something for the first time. His first time seeing a flamingo at the zoo, his first bite of bacon, his first experience driving through a car wash and his first pool party!

Our apartment in Nashville had a pool (like most here do), but Phoenix never got to experience it. By the time I was cleared for swimming, we bought our house. I wasn't sad to move out of our apartment, except for our easy pool access.

Over the weekend, the three of us went to a casual pool party. Of course I, as the mama, immediately got hyped up for Phoenix's first pool visit. Phoenix loves bath time, so I assumed he'd love swimming or at least I hoped he would like the pool! I was very much a water baby. My mom had my brother's and I in swim lessons at a very young age and then I swam competitively through high school.

Once the initial shock of water temperature wore off Phoenix had a blast! We skipped his afternoon nap and you'd never know it. He was so chill. Which (if you know Phoenix in person) is not the first adjective I use to describe him. HA.

Phoenix spent most of the time in a floaty device that has a sun cover. The swim diaper and rash guard I ordered on Amazon didn't arrive in time. Rarely does an item arrive late, but it happens!
