I’m wondering if I’m a crack mom for not enrolling Toots in any classes this year.
Last summer, we tried ballet, and she’s been on and off in Gymstars…but have there been any classes you’ve put your kids in that you’ve loved and/or that taught them discipline and to stop talking about killing things?
Maybe karate or judo? Archery?
Have you heard of AWANA? Should I do that?
Also, why do I think that t-ball is demonic (it seems so Stepford)? Is this a pre-conceived notion? And, is soccer all it’s cracked up to be?
I don’t want to over-enroll her, just pick a class or two for this summer. I’m not asking for much. I just want a class that will shape the person she is to become. One that will teach her teamwork and to love others and to build the foundation for her to possibly invent something that will make me a lot of money (Tinkertoys? But that teaches building stuff, right? Which wouldn’t be bad, I guess. As long as it molds her into a real estate mogul. And Tinkertoys isn’t even a class, I know that. And I’m kidding about the real estate mogul and inventor stuff. I’d be so happy if she became a writer. As long as she was famous and well-paid. Just kidding. Pretty muchish.). I don’t know. Also, I’m considering a class that teaches her to stay afloat.
I suppose swimming ought to be on my list.
Either way, any classes that’ve really wowed you and your 4- or 5-year-old? (Are there acting classes for four-year-olds?)
I guess that’s all. Thanks for letting me pump your mommy brains.
p.s. And to help you guide me in better running my child’s life, here is some important extra information that may be relevant:
She was born in the sign of wa-ter and it’s there that she feels her best. The albatross and the whale, they are her brother. (Sorry, every now and then the Little River Band assumes my identity.)
She often trips when walking.
She is social.
She is an alpha female.
She enjoys chocolate. A lot.
She obsesses about witches eating her face.
She is Toots. Hear her roar.
No really, I’m sorry. Seriously? My sinus infection is unresponsive to antibiotics and my snot is still chunky and yellow and while I joked about it before, I really think it’s eating my brain. For reals.
Please ignore that last sentence and just focus on my original question. I forget what it was.
