One of my favorite summertime activities is to get wet. Swimming, sprinklers, fountains, water parks – you name it, I love it.
Because Adeline is still in diapers, swim diapers are a must for us. Last week, before leaving for my weekly Target trip, I downloaded this coupon for $1.50 off Huggies Little Swimmers. It’s crazy to me that this was probably the last time I will ever buy swim diapers for Adeline since we hope she’ll potty train soon.
(By the way, don’t be like me and look for them in the diaper aisle. The swim diapers were actually on an end cap on the main aisle, along with some adorable swimsuits.
I opened the pack of Huggies Little Swimmers promptly when I got home and divided them in half – one half for day care since she has water day every Thursday and Friday (so fun!) and one half in our swim bag.
I have found that keeping them in the same spot makes it easy when we decide to swim last minute, like we did this past weekend at our friends’ neighborhood’s pool.
I put on Adeline’s swim diaper and swimsuit once we got to the pool. (It can be bad news if you put a swim diaper too far in advance of the pool!) Love that cute bottom in her Little Swimmer. Pooh and baby fat gets me every time.
The kids had a blast splashing, swimming and playing together. Don’t you love when friends feel like family?
Unfortunately the pool had to close early because of thunder, but that didn’t stop us from getting silly poolside.
Also, I feel like it would be remiss not to mention that while my body doesn’t look like it once did and I don’t love putting on a swimsuit, that never stops me from swimming with my kids. Ever. I want to make memories together and I know that my less-than-perfect tummy will not be what they remember.
If you have a “Little Swimmer” at home, I want to encourage you to get wet with them. It will bless you – and them.
Do you swim with your kids? If you have little ones, do you use Huggies Little Swimmers?
