Day 1: Everything goes fine. Extra splashing. Got dunked by instructor. Peachy.
Day 2: Completely copacetic. No worries.
Day 3: Sublime.
Day 4: Missed due to allergic reaction fall out.
Day 5: Opens door to the Y for mommy. Such a gentleman!! Rakes door across toes. Screams so loudly everyone turns to see what child is being beaten/abducted/dying. Child semi comforted, drag him through the gate, down the locker room hall to pool door. Hurry! Late! Child utterly refuses to take off t-shirt, shoes, or go through pool door. Screams more. Cut losses and go on with day.
Day 6: Daddy takes child to swim lessons. No smashed toes, same reaction. Nope, not going in there, no way daddy.
