We are so not paying for college.
Maddy is going to get a scholarship for swimming. I am sure of it. I pretty sure she is the best ever.
I know she's my kid, so I am biased. But seriously, I think we are on to something.
Yesterday at the meet, you know the one that started at 6:45 am, she took 4 first places and a second.
She took first with her relay teams in the Medley relay and Freestyle relay. She was the third leg. According to what I know, it's the anchor leg.
She did her job. She caught her team to first place by a quarter of a lap in both races. I couldn't believe it. Is this the same child that lacks motivation in, well, seemingly everything else?
Huh? Who knew?
She also took first in the 100m IM. That's definitely her race. She beat the times of the boys and girls.
Her final first was in the 25m breast stroke.
Her 2nd was in the 25m freestyle.
I had to know what the deal was. So I asked her on the way home.
"Sweetie, what makes you want to work so hard at swimming?"
"Duh, Mom, swimming's important."
Oh, course. And helping out around the house is...what...a suggestion?
