I’m a sucker for good marketing. I’m pretty sure I was sold on swim classes at La Petite Baleen based on the logo alone. Then once the instructor strapped swim goggles and a baby inner tube around Hank, it was game over. Many thanks to my little bro for 1) not making me put on a swimsuit and 2) for enthusiastically jumping in with all the other new moms. Uncle of the year.
After sending the above photo to our family chat, these are the responses I received:
Husband: “How was he relative to the other kids?”
Sister 1: “The next Michael Phelps.”
Father: “Look at the size of his hands. What an athlete.”
Sister 2: “He’s so brave, he doesn’t even look scared!”
Bunch of psychos. Some pics below of my little fishy:
