Asher just finished swimming lessons at our neighborhood pool. His class evaluation read like this:
"Asher wears a smile to class everyday. He still has some skills to work on. Please register him for the previous swim class next session."
Translation: Your son is enthusiastic but has no talent. You are one of THOSE parents who think their child is PERFECT in every way and WITHOUT FAIL you stick them in the most advanced class regardless of their true abilities. GET A CLUE!
Rebuttal: I am in charge of registering the boys for swim lessons, but Ed is always the one to take them. (I work on Saturdays and during the summertime....prime swimming lesson times).
I have a strong suspicion that Ed spends swimming lesson time with his nose in a book or fidgeting with his iPod, so his analysis of their swimming abilities is pretty useless and I am left guessing when registration time rolls around.
