For some reason, I cannot get his image of Maggie out of my mind! I think it's because I was so surprised when she turned around and I got my first glimpse of what her teen years will look like! I knew that Cousin Callie had brought her make up and I knew that they were playing with it in the kitchen, but this shocked me.Needless to say, I obsess over a lot of parenting issues. For several weeks, I have been trying to make decisions on our schedule for the next preschool year. I want Maggie to be involved in fun activities without being over scheduled. Maggie will have school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for three hours each day. She insists on going to Storytime at the Library on Thursdays, so we are left with one free weekday, which I think is great. I was asked to join MOPS at our Church, but it's every other Tuesday so our free days would be cut in half. I think I've decided to skip MOPS and take her to Awana Cubbies, but I'm still not sure! She also has children's choir on Sunday evenings. We (me & Maggie) had talked a little about signing up for dance classes (for her, not me) but I'm pretty sure we won't be doing that. I have no doubt that she'll enjoy all of the activity, but I also know that she loves having free-play time.
So...I'm curious. What coordinated activities did you do as a child?
