It's Just Mammals Being Mammals!

We had a fun weekend. My daughter finished her swim lessons on Friday. For those who read this post, these were the lessons with all the crazy rules. Well, it turned out her instructor was really great and did an amazing job teaching her! His supervisor felt her swim stroke is now good enough for a swim team! I don't know about that, but I have seen huge improvement over this past week of swim lessons.

So, I thought it would be great to go to the public pool over the weekend so her dad could see her great swimming! Our nearby public pool is not like a typical public pool. It's in the ritzy part of town in Calabasas. Calabasas has turned into quite the highbrow, rich community. It's also known as reality show central since a ton of reality shows take place there or nearby (Newlyweds, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and Denise Richards It's Complicated). As you can tell by this list, this area has its share of celebrities--particularly in the music industry. Britney Spears, Ozzy Osbourne, and Leann Rimes also live there. Of course, none of them go to the public pool. However, the city can afford an amazing public pool. They bought out the country club and turned it into a public pool. For a nominal fee, you can have access to their gorgeous, olympic-size pool and use the locker rooms. These locker rooms are very pretty and even include amenities such as hair dryers. You gotta love Calabasas! It's a great town.

Anyway, my husband had fun swimming with our daughter. We even ran into a couple of friends of my daughter there! It was nice for her to see kids she knows since she's already missing her friends from school.

After swimming, we went into the locker room to shower and change. While there, my daughter started to stare at a woman breastfeeding her child. I quietly told her not to stare. After we left the locker room, I asked her if she has any questions about what she saw. She said, "I was confused at first, but then I realized it was just mammals being mammals!"

She cracks me up!


  1. She is a smart one!!! So true!

  2. This literally made me LOL! Love it.

  3. LOVE that smartypants girl of yours. Mammals being mammals - just kills me!

  4. I can't believe that I had to learn about that here.
