Aden's first dip in the pool

I've been wanting to bring Aden to swim since he loves water so much. But I want  hubby to go along and the only time he is free is on Sundays. 
But weather wasn't really good in the evening, and we have to be in our swim suits if going to those public pools. This isn't a big problem for me, but hubby seems to be a bit shy on this (cheh 吃到酱大还paiseh什么?!)
其实很'浪费'因为老公很会游泳,就因为要穿泳裤所以他坚持不要下水。。(男人啊,面子真的那么重要meh??=p 如果是,那你就plan一下弄个私人游泳池啦!^^ ) 

On the other hand, my FIL is concern about the chlorine in the water.

Haiz, so due to all sorts of dilly dally, I've decided to buy a plastic kiddie pool and let Aden enjoy swimming at home, for the mean time.
Bought a set of plastic pool from an online store, it comes with all sorts of accessories and I think it's quite convenient! Here daddy is setting up the pool and my kepochi son is watching


I love this pool as it's tall enough for Aden (since he's only 70cm tall =_=). Most pools I see in supermarkets are shallow and only meant for kids/adults.

By the way a little note to hubby: Sorry I need to betray you now for posting some of your topless photos below, kakaka! (Actually nothing to see also la, LOL)
Paiseh 啊老公,以下有些照片大可能会看到你的_ _。。哎呀不用紧啦,你身材那么好,怕什么?*bodek-ing* (很会演戏的老婆)
心里话: 其实没什么好看pun xD

Aden and daddy getting ready~ 

Aden: Papa what are you going to do?? Why am I topless?

Testing testing.. He seems a bit shocked at first, but slowly getting to feel comfortable in the pool

Haha don't ask me what is this expression

Water was a bit cold, but we did pour in hot water too~

Aden is enjoying his splash splash time~

Our kepochi dog wants to join too! Speaking of dog, our pet would still bark at Aden once in a while. They will keep staring at Aden if we bring him near

Daddy enjoyed too~ And mummy enjoyed snapping non stop!

=)

His swim diaper is quite girly, haha! But who cares! :p

The pool set comes with this neckfloat 

And a few colorful duckie

Opps getting sleepy liao~

We let him played in the pool for about 30 minutes, then quickly changed him and keep him warm. I think Aden likes it and is looking forward to more of it! (As if I can read his mind)
Wait til he's big enough, we'll bring him to the proper swimming pool.

  2. Need a lot of water to fill up the pool. Once in a while should be alright afterall it's fun. The weather is not good you did the right thing to keep him warm after a swim. Dont forget to keep the daddy warm too :)

    1. Good that you let Aden splash in water at his young age, he will grow to like swimming more and he won't scare to dip in pool in future.

    2. Both my girls went into water when babies too, now they are learning swimming and both can swim without floater and board already.

    2. oooh, so thoughtful you add in some hot water to make it a warm bath for Aden.. i am sure he would like it a lot.. and i think it's good to let babies and kids learn to swim since young, it's one skill for survival..

      Delete
    3. haha, LOL at your hubby!! why he doesn't dare to wear swimsuit in public pool?? aiyah, sure one day later when Aden grows up, he would have to go to the pool outside.. unless you can buy one big bungalow with private pool~~ :p

      Delete
    4. SK, yes that's why I buy this, so much different than the common ones.

      Yes, must make the water a bit warm otherwise he might catch a cold easily.

      Haha because he is paiseh lo! =_=
      I also hope can own one big bungalow with private pool *dream mode*

  12. Nice pool. I also plan to buy one for my boy, but the one at Tesco is so shallow. I also have concern with the amount of chlorine they put in the swimming pool, and have been hesitating to bring my boy there.

    1. I have forbid my children to play with the pool. They tend to overuse the water and it's wasteful!

      And at the end of the session, they'll fight who gets to hold the water hose. GGRRRR...

      Delete
    2. My kids like to wet the floor and run, then slide. Horrors! What if they fell down and knock their heads? They would turn bodoh already, I scolded them!

      Delete
    3. Yvonne, haha yea, absolutely!

      Well, I am worried Aden would do the same when he grows up (like Avery & Little Chi's age now), cause they are big enough to know how to waste water =_="

  17. wa wa wa,,your plastic pool also got gaya lol...I have always believed this,,,all children should be taught about swimming,,,it is just part of life......may be you wait till he can walk walk,then send him for lesson..

    It is also important to learn correct techniques on swimming,,,,come come Aden boy,let uncle eugene teach you, I can teach you,,,breast stroke,back stroke,,butterfly, tortoise, kangaroo,semua style uncle Eugene also knows,,hahahahahahah.

    I wait for you ya,,,you stay strong now,,,,

  22. Let him enjoy his private pool, then slowly can show him off in kids pool. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a splashing good time he had :) If you ask me, I actually prefer this kind of private pool than public swimming pools. At least the water is cleaner and can play in the comfort of your own home.
