Swim Lessons

We're doing February swim lessons at the Y.  The kids have really taken to it, especially Clyde.  After only one day they kept wanting to swim underwater and play in the kiddie pool forever.  Which led to a problem... Alice pooped in the pool (in a swim diaper thankfully).  She had been making such good progress for the past month. We had really struggled with potty training with Alice.  I'd read all the books "Scared to Poop", "Constipation, Withholding and Your Child", etc.  She had finally gotten over her fear, but then after the pool incident we're almost back to square one.  Bump in the road, I know.   She really wants to be grown up and get past this but she struggles so much with it.  We struggle too.  It's hard to know what to do.  So I just trust that she'll figure it out and try not to overreact (which is a lot harder when you hear all the whistles blaring as children are hauled out of the kiddie pool on our account).  I'll be so happy when we finally figure this out!
