Why do I have to drag my son, kicking and screaming to do something incredibly fun?! He loves his Karate class! He started last year and we tried out a bunch of other martial art studios, but he fell in love with this one (I highly recommend Rod Sanford Martial Arts in Soquel! http://sanfordkarate.com/ ) and only wanted to go there. So we’ve been going ever since.
When it was pretty much the only thing going on last fall, he was thrilled to go! He would beg to go on days there was no class! He still loves it, but now that we’re much busier, he’s tired in the afternoon, has a favorite TV show, though he doesn’t get to watch much TV, we both love Wild Kratts and it happens to be on at the same time as karate. So, now he whines and cries and it’s a big huge struggle to get him to go. But he is all smiles and laughs two seconds after he gets there! He loves it! I just have to remind him of it every time I’m trying my best to get him there on time! And his favorite part is the warm ups in the beginning, so he does not like to be late. Ugh. I hope this is a short lived faze. It’s exhausting!
