She always loved to dance, so we enrolled her in the local dance school at three and she loved it.
# Don't be fooled by that bunny outfit below, she just wasn't much of a tutu girl back then, being a Pirate floated her boat, so much more!
We're into our forth year, and I love that my girl loves to dance, only thing is, she doesn't love to dance anymore.
It's been a turbulent year on the dancing front, it's been hard as a mother to make the right call.
Paying fees, buying shoes, just letting her quit.
I didn't want to let her 'just quit', I wanted her to understand that I had spent money on this, that she had a commitment and that she needed to see the year out.
But I'm waiving the white flag and surrender.
Monday afternoons are tough, the pressure to race from school to dancing, there is just not enough love.
I believe in seeing things through, but have come to realise that as a child, you probably need to try your hand at a few different things before you truly find your fit.
Who knows what 2013 will bring.
But for now, term 4 will bring a break from Tap / Jazz / Ballet, a focus on Acrobatics only and a desire to chill out and enjoy the spring and forth coming summer.
Because life is too short and a child is too young to not be doing what they truly love.
What activities / sports do your children love?
