Golf Girl

Last year ago, I signed my daughter up for dance lessons with her best friend. She went twice and then refused to go. All her friends took dance but she'd have no part of it. In fact, there is really nothing she has asked to do after school except for golf.

Today she took a golf lesson. I had to stay near her through the lesson, (surprise) but here she is trying to master a swing, while looking at the ball and then the final toe point at follow-through. She was so happy to be taking a class after so many years of watching her brother and his friend. I mean she was really happy -- laughing and giggling and she was never frustrated when she missed the ball.

So I won't have a ballerina... maybe a golfer instead.

The golf for your daughter sounds wonderful - yes, sounds like dance wasn't her thing. My son has never done the soccer/basketball sports w. his class mates for some reason either - he has his own sport, hockey which he has done for many years. In that I have seen him develop friends outside of school = the same I'm sure will occur w. your daughter, she will have her "golfing" friends and her "school" friends. Can you imagine it when she starts getting her awards, etc.? Terry in SF

Terry, My daughter is so strong willed... she knows what she likes and doesn't like. She was so determined today. I was smiling all through her lesson. Thank you for sharing the story about your son. How did he get interested in hockey? You'll have to share that with me one day.

That is so cool that you let her follow her desire. I'm always surprised at my children and how they never are what I expect them to be. And what a growing thing for her to accomplish. What does big brother think?

BM, Actually, my son had another sortie/trip to a golf course yesterday and didn't see her take a lesson. I think he'll think it's cool.

I figure as long as they have an activity they are interested in then it doesn't really matter if it is "gender" appropriate or whatever nonsense. They just need to be active.

Daisy, I agree. I just want her to be happy.
