So, Adi is now old enough to play little kickers in the fall, sign ups are happening now, it's cheap and only one 30 min practice and one 30 min game a week. Here's the thing, she is going to preschool, real deal all day 5 days a week preschool (if she so chooses to go of course) and doing ballet. Ballet meets once a week after school and soccer will be once a week after school and saturday mornings.
The obvious answer is to not do soccer. She loves Ballet, will probably hate soccer (the lack of skirts are already causing an uproar in every day conversation)and will love school. But here's the thing, I don't foresee a break in either Ballet or school anytime soon. And I do feel strongly about at least exposing her to different activies.
(Also, I know and see the argument of not doing organized sports at a young age. One thing I wish was different in my youth was doing sports earlier. Yes, I started running competitively at 9 yrs old and there were some seasons of tee ball in there in the early years. But it was not something I really got to do and really wished I had. So, call it a complex if you will, but I plan on
Ok, so it comes down to this, at some point soon Adi will be forced to try and play soccer. Obviously it would be easiest to not do ballet that season (but that would be extra torture for her )If she hates it then so be it. Do I do it this fall or is that a bit of a full plate for a 3 yr old?
Besides...what if she loves it???
