The Deep End: We All Have One

When was the last time you were scared to try something new? I am a mom, and in the last few weeks of swim lessons, my little dude developed a fear for the deep end. It seemed as if the fear came out of nowhere. You see, we didn’t just start swim lessons yesterday for our little dude, he’s been…
