OK, maybe not that amazing but still, from her mother’s basement with butterfly brass pulls? My imagination was in full gear. Now, here is where the title of this post will become clear.

ALWAYS ASK FIRST
Our weekend was full of swim team fun and my kids came in 1st place at our swim team talent show! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQwioSFzKxE
And, I am proud to say, I swam a leg in the Mom’s swim relay on Sunday and we came in 1st place 🙂 Love that my kids were watching and cheering me on (although at the end of it I felt like I had completed the IronMan competition)!
ok i actually love it! seriously.
I guess adding “miracle worker” to your job description is not out of the question…Can’t wait to see what you do with this! I’ll certainly stay tuned… 🙂
