Summer Swimming Safety Tips Everyone Should Know

Lake Swimming

Precaution is better than cure.
-Edward Coke

 

My daughters are obsessed with mermaids.

They have checked out every mermaid book in our local library. They have watched every mermaid movie on Netflix. They have mermaid coloring books, and for one of their birthdays they got a mermaid tail they can wear in the pool (or bathtub).

These little girls are eating and breathing mermaids right now, and I couldn’t be happier. Because you know what is the cutest thing in the world? Listening to mermaid stories they come up with in the back of the car, complete with mermaid names in a mermaid land and figuring out what they’re going to eat as mermaids.

Mermaids are a thing here.

A big thing.

They are obsessed with mermaids in ways only little girls can be.

Know what their mom is obsessed with?

Swimming safety.

Because you can watch all the mermaid movies on earth…it isn’t going to teach you how to swim, how to walk safely next to a pool, or how to stay safe in the water.

We are enjoying another summer full of swim lessons and beach trips, and you bet I am making sure we have sunscreen, towels, bathing suits, mermaid tails and a good, healthy dose of water safety reminders!

Because a happy mermaid is a safe mermaid!

However you love the water, whether in water wings or on a floatie, these are good reminders for everyone before hitting the waves!
