WOLFIES HAS A NEW STUDENT
Wolfies Swim School has a new student and her name is Macy Silianoff. Weighing in at 39 pounds, 5 years of age, and panache for feral behavoir - the school has their work cut out for them.
Located in the heart of Bellaire, Cindy Meador (whose maiden name is Wolf) owns her namesake school with her fireman husband, Richard. The couple has four kids under the age of seven and their family embodies the Wolfies brand which boasts community, philanthropy, and of course - swimming. Cindy and Richard are marketing geniuses for two reasons. One - they hired us (Mad Meg) to manage their social media (#plug) and two, their proof is all in the pudding. All four of their kids are fish.
And here's the kicker about Wolfies. They actually teach your kid to swim. Shocker - I KNOW. Macy, is not necessary alumni but rather a drop-out of TWO other swim schools in the Houston area. Not because she didn't love them (Macy loves everything) but because her mother (me) thought it was great that she was enjoying herself but wanted her to actually learn some tips and tricks on how not to drown in life. Games, songs, and class sizes of 5 kids or more are great for Macy's socializing but improvement in her straight up swimming skills? I got nothin. (Or should I say, Macy got nothin.)
Which means my strokes at the pool this summer will be less frequent. What I've failed to mention is that Macy's overwhelming optimism allows her to do things such as jump in the deep end, jump off a diving board, and for a non-swimming related example; jump into a busy street of oncoming traffic, thinking that things will seemingly work out just fine for her.
This summer at the pool I have dreams of giving my book du jour and @goatsofanarchy instagram feed my undivided attention knowing Macy's swim game is a la Michael Phelps!! Apparently Wolfies can't make you a good parent....but it will enable you to parent poorly more safely.
