Me: Ellyse, would you like to take soccer lessons?
Me: Ellyse, would you like to try t-ball?
Ellyse: uh uh.
Me: How about tai-kwan-do? Your friend is in that. That might be fun.
ME: Let's sign you up for tumbling.
E: No. There's a guy teacher.
Me: It's time to get ready for dance. Let's get going.
E: Can I stay home this week?
We take the kids ice skating for fun one Saturday night and find out there are lessons available there. It's a very reasonable price so I ask and she happily agrees! :)
E: Mom, when do I start ice skating?
Me: Today at 5:45.
E: that's a long time to wait.
Me: couldn't be prouder!!
