oh boy

I love my daughter more than life itself, she is funny, creative, smart and gorgeous, but athlete she is not. She was in gymnastics for close to a year and still has not mastered a cartwheel, she was hit seven times in the head with a t-ball last year and all three years of  soccer have been a disaster. For some ungodly reason even though she hated soccer she is making me sign her up again, oh I just don't know if i do it again ,why must she torture me so.

yeah well, I have a kid who refuses to sign up for team sports despite a scary-fierce competitive nature that I think organized activities might harness. Sure, she swims, does gymnastics, and does ballet, but TEAM? Oh hell no. For she is solitary like the lion. (and her dad.)

-- I think for your daughter, it's like having a class (or teacher) you don't like --it doesn't mean the experience isn't fun, it just means that particular person --coach, teacher-- didn't help the fun along. So, can you find a different group? Get in touch with me, let's have Fri morning coffee & chat, my place? (Or, I'll find you...)

the group is great, but she hates soccer. Every year it is torture to get her ready for the games, go to practice, pay attention during the game, it is just so annoying, but my dad said that I was like that when I was younger and I went on to be a really good, competitive soccer player. So anyhow, yes let's do friday coffee, maybe we can go to the awards assembly together and then maybe rosewood, dare we? I love to say dare we, I cannot stop.

heh. We dare, at least I do.

oh, lord. Awards. aaaak. (gotta make something.)

--good to know about the group, I think that can make all the difference in the world. And, that she wants to do it means something at least...


community matters, my kids, running and whatever pops in my head
