Our little son is big on bathtime and water in general. He has been in the ocean, a pond and pools. We signed him up for a swimming class for babies and their parents. Dad goes in and I look on. Coldish water freaks out my stroke side.  My muscles wants to bend inward. Annoying!

Anyone else have water issues?

    Anything cold will cause my muscles to band inward too. I have a hard time during long, cold winters.
