Cactus-Fish Kid Truth #2

Mia is the most determined kid I have ever known. Tonight, mere minutes ago, she participated in her swim team's swimathon. She swam for 45 minutes straight. 27 laps. That is determination.

WOW! That is amazing! When I see her name in the Olympics I'll say "Hey! I remember her!".

Wooo! Go Mia :D You know if she ever has a meet in my town (Hey, we're only totally on the other side of the continent - but *apparently* we're the tournament capital of Canada, so if Mia goes all international...) I would definitely come to cheer her on ;)

Ohhhh btw! I got "Cut, Paste, Kill" from the library today and I am quite looking forward to digging into it this weekend :D

If Mia ever decides to make some sort of motivational self-help "Just Do It!" DVD, put me down for a copy.

I don't think I could do that!

Way to go, Mia! That's awesome! I can't do that even now, and I was on the swim team for years!!

Mia is my hero!
I get tired having to watch my kid at swimming lessons.
