While it is in some sense fanreakingtastic to discover that your bathing suit no longer fits, it is absolutely also dreadful. Because this means one must now go bathing suit shopping. I am a water child, if there is water, I must be in it. There is no question about this. I must be suited for the swim.
One of my new favourite memories is my son and I donning our funny goggles, counting to 3 and then sinking below the water to wave at each other. And pool tag is way more fun if you can see the person you are chasing.
