It has taken me two weeks before I managed to have time to sit down and write on this. In terms of priorities, I haven’t ranked this blog high enough because not enough people seem to show interest in parenting and childcare. This is not to imply that Kurdish parents are not interested in learning about parenting, but perhaps they’re just not as keen on sharing or engaging in discussions regarding this.
Two weeks ago, I took my son, who turned 6 months-old this week to his first session of swimming. It was amazing, thrilling and exhilarating seeing my son swim. At first, it was nerve-wrecking, a million thoughts went through my head. What if he cries — or flips upside down, you never know what could go wrong.
On our way home, it dawned on me that babies in Kurdistan don’t have a spa where they can have water running through their diapers (not literally) — where they can splash water, giggle, swiggle and wiggle. Which is why, I started a new page on this blog, titled “baby spa” and I’m looking for people who are interested in investing in bringing baby spa to Kurdistan.
There are so many benefits to swimming for babies — you can bond with other parents, it is a fun family activity that will bring everyone more closer together and if that doesn’t persuade you, then knowing that you’re teaching your baby a skill is more than enough.
