English Writing

I had to track this here for future reference

My Little One started Swimming Classes

My little one, so enjoys water, she wants to splash and be in water the whole time, since she is 4.5 now and does not have any activity we decided to enroll her in swimming classes.
We asked her if she wanted to go and she said, nope, i do not want to go for any swimming classes.
Anyway we being parents, we enrolled her in the Winter Session in Foss starting from Jan 2019, Wed 8:15 class.
Come Wed, she went to play with her friend and then at 7:30, I asked the other girl to go home as we had to go out. Now, i had told the other girl's mother we had swimming classes and so while leaving the girl mentions, Oh, Riti has to go for swimming class.
When my little one heard this she went down on the floor with her legs in the air and started howling out loud. I do not want to go swimming waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Big brother was on her side as usual and started questioning why we had enrolled her  when she was not interested.
We somehow got her ready and told her there would be lots of toys and if she's not happy we will come back soon and the whole family went for baby's first swimming lesson.
Since it is later in the evening she was the only one in her batch in L1. Baby went fast into the water and put her face in, drew bubbles, did back swimming on a noodle and everything that the teacher wanted her to do.
When the class was over she asks the teacher if she can stay for some more time in the water. :)

Next class she had a fever and we could not take her, let's see how the other classes go.
