Should Mom be on Snapchat?

Do your kids roll their eyes and complain when they find out you just opened your own account on Instagram, Snapchat or VSCO?

Swimming is an amazing sport, and competitive swimming trains true athletes. I’m continually impressed with the discipline, athleticism and mental toughness it takes to be a competitive swimmer.
