I just got done with a grueling four days away from home doing a show. I didn't get home until late at night, just in time to settle in and relax and watch swimming on the Olympics.
I usually never watch the Olympics -- it doesn't cross my radar in the normal scheme of my hectic life, which is a shame, because after the past week, I've seen what I've been missing all these years.
Swimming was really interesting to me because Zack has been in the water since I could sign him up for Mommy and Me classes at six months old. He's planning on trying out for the swim team this September (!) and it's something that has helped him deal with the Sensory Integration Disorder that plagues him.
Doesn't this look like an Olympian?
Michael Phelps, of course just rocks the pool. He lives an hour from us, in Baltimore, and you can bet I'll be keeping my eyes and ears open for any swim clinics he ever hosts. I particularly was interested in how his parents got him into swimming at age seven, to help him with his ADHD.
And I love Dara Torres, because she's 41 with a 2-year-old and has the best sportsmanship ever.What were your favorite moments?
