Taking A ... Jab ... At Tae Kwon Do

My little ballerina is hanging up her tutu (for the time being) and we are trying TAE KWON DO.

I'm so excited.

Camille, as you may know, has a big personality and is no shrinking violet. Ironic since Violet was one of my top baby names for her.

She was the sweetest little ballerina, but I did want to see how she channeled her energy in a higher-energy type of class, and with a TKD studio around the corner from us, I decided to enroll her in the free trial class the other day.

The class is 3-6 year olds and only 30 minutes long. At certain parts she was really shy and didn't fully participate, but the other parents watching told me that was completely normal and that their child did the same. 

My sisters and I grew up practically living at the dance studio -- we took classical ballet more days out of the week than not. So this is a whole new ballgame to me. But I love the idea of trying it all when she's small and exposing her to all sorts of new skills and experiences.

Plus, there is a BIG emphasis in these classes on respect, listening, and following orders, so I think any parent of a toddler is like #enrollmychild

After our trial class, we've decided to move forward with regular classes. It's $90/month for once-a-week classes, so not inexpensive in the least. But Ian and I talked about it and think it will be great to try it month to month and see if it sticks!

Halfway thru the class she ripped her pink hairbow out and ran over to me and shoved it in my hand. 

So, here's to a new experience and a bad-a$$ little tae kwon do-er. Ahem, excuse my language. (Proud mama.)
