late may

By Tara Zandra | May 23, 2007

Yesterday was our last Kindermusik class until summer session starts in a couple months. By the time we go back, Daisy will have lost all enthusiasm for it and we’ll be starting all over again in regards to her participation. Frankly, I don’t care if she participates if she doesn’t want to, and the instructor doesn’t ever push any kid to participate. The point of the class is more in what the parent and child can take home with them and do together away from class. But it’s not really fun to do the class with a kid who’s limp as spaghetti and has a sullen look on her face. And that’s pretty much how she is until the “get up and dance” portion and then she’s bouncy and having a grand time for the rest of the class- though she is rather adverse to holding hands and walking in a circle for some reason. Anyway, she’s been looking forward to class these last few weeks and I just feel the time off will cause her to not care about it again.

I did scrapbook yesterday, making use of my craft table in the dining room. It was so easy to walk over to it while Tabitha was working on stuff by herself during lessons. Much better than me mindlessly coming to the computer. I finished a 4 page layout from Tabitha’s birthday so I’m pleased about that. I still have to do her party though but I think a trip to the scrapbook store is in order for a few supplies. Also I’m running low on my stash of pictures so I should probably order some more. The goal of having the craft table in here is so I work more at it as opposed to doing nothing on the computer just because it’s here. Here’s hoping it continues to work out.

    Gillian was never big on participating at Gymboree. She liked playing with their stuff, but she had next to no interest in doing any of the group activities, except for the parachute. She did start getting into it during the last session we did, when she was about Daisy’s age — I can’t remember now why we didn’t sign her up again after that.
