Several months into practicing her plié and shuffle-step, while driving home from class, I asked Samantha if she was enjoying her dance lessons. In her sweet little voice, my pleasing child replied, “No…I think it’s kind of boring.”
What?!?!?! What was this silly girl talking about? This was going to be her thing. I drove on wondering how to convince her that she really didn’t mean what she had said, and that one day, perhaps the day she was crowned Miss America, she would remember this day and be grateful she stuck with it. Instead, from her car seat in the back, she perked up and in her kindergarten wisdom said,
“I would like to be a gymnast.”
