My sister and I were talking about my routine for getting to and from swim lessons and she quickly said to me, "oh, that's tell it to your neighbor!" And come to think of it, every other time I take my kids to swim a mom or a dad says to me, "That's a great idea, I need to do that." So I guess this would qualify as something I should tell my neighbor right away. Here it is, this is how we've been going to and fro swim school (year round) for over 3 years:

Because we've toweled off, the car seats are fine, not too wet and then we change out of our suits when we get home. Easy breezy! And I have a confession, I pretty much lived in the pool growing up and we never really rinsed off after swimming. So, like our parents, I don't rinse them off either, we even get in our PJs when we get home. Ha! But if you prefer to rinse your kids, make it easier on yourself and do that at home as well.
I wish I could recommend our robes, they do the job but they have torn in the wash. So I've seen a few new options and some are on sale! I'm looking for a robe with a hood because we take swim lessons in the winter. So here's what I've found:
|Gap - French Terry Bear in 3 colors|
|Pottery Barn Kids - Fleece Robe|
|Pottery Barn Kids - Terry Stripe Cover Up|
|Pottery Barn Kids - Terry Zebra Cover Up|
|Bianca Bathrobe - Kid Bubble|
- Our swim school is Wolfies Swim School and we love it to say the least!
- It's usually indoors so sunscreen is not usually part of the routine.
- If a kiddo is still in diapers, put a regular diaper on underneath the swim diaper for transit and remove it when you get to swim lessons. My sister taught me that one!
