Dave and I almost fell into the trap of what we now realize would have been potentially over-scheduling our daughter at 6-years-old. A couple times recently she’s mentioned taking gymnastics. Something she and Thomas did together once a week this past year but ended before the season was over due to nice weather and car naps making attendance challenging. So I called around and found a class she could take Thursday nights from 7-8pm. A class she was supposed to try out this past week. When we mentioned it the night before, she said she didn’t want to do it the next day but would another time. Here we go, I thought. She is saying that at a time when she’s tired and, understandably, doesn’t wanted added events to overwhelm her current commitments: going to school and being a kid. So gymnastics was scrapped before it started and we will stick to every other week Girl Scouts, piano and once-a-week dance. Plenty on her little plate!
