|1 yr ago - He looks so small!|
It was simpler when Mini-Me was younger, less mobile and less vocal. She too is DONE with the whole thing. We have to get in the car when it is freezing to drive 5 minutes, sit in a tiny waiting space and she isn't allowed out on the big mats where the kids are doing fun things, then 30 minutes later back in the carseat. I literally spend my time keeping her occupied and no longer can watch the cool stuff the K-Man is learning. On a side note, she does entertain everyone with her "hi-yas" and calling for her brother. Truthfully, I think the K-Man is over it too. He doesn't ask for it, or get all excited when I say to get ready. When I asked him if he wanted to continue, he said, "Well, I would like to earn that black belt". I tried to explain that could take 2 years, but the concept of years is still lost a bit on him.
Our contract ends June 1st and we have decided to not renew. T-ball starts this month, and we want K-Man to try other things. If we did both, then we would literally have 4 nights a week taken up with activities for him. It just doesn't seem practical. I would be a crazy woman trying to feed the kids and get them to everything. And there is of course, the dragging of the younger sister to MORE things not for her. So I guess it isn't only about overscheduling him at the moment, but also me and Mini-Me.
