And so it begins...

The "busy" years have officially begun in the "D" house. D-Man had his first extracurricular activity yesterday...Gymnastics.

Now let me preface all this by saying this is a pretty big endeavor for old mom here because I don't just get to get in the car, drive a couple of minutes and let him take lessons. We have to get in the car, put on a movie and eat breakfast on the way because we must drive 45 minutes to make this all happen (and make it happen by 10 am.) That my bloggy friends, is a loving mommy.

Anyway, we arrived and I completed the necessary forms and paid the necessary money while D-Man "explored" his new surroundings with one of his friends and their mommy. And boy, did he ever love all the gymnastic "toys." He ran, he jumped, he ran, he ran, he jumped and he ran. Did I mention that he ran and jumped? If not, well, he ran and jumped.

But, all wasn't so rosy with D-Man when teacher instruction began because D-Man being I'm sure an abnormal 2 year old wanted it his way and only his way. I'm sure none of you with small children or those who have had small children have ever had this type of experience, one where the child exerts all the independence they ever thought they had or wanted to have at one particular moment. And this independece comes out as a few loud outbursts, some arm flailing and some dramatic faces.

None of you have ever experienced that, have you? Thought so...

Anywoo, after a brief calm down session in the bathroom, D-Man was ready to go and enjoyed all the activities of the day.

Will we go again? Oh yes!

And I will pray that all the mommies and tots there will either all be new or have developed a case of amnesia and won't remember the first time they met us. Oh, did I say that out loud?

Oh, the joys of the first extracurricular activities... so begins many years of running here and there! It's all worth it though, and it's really good for him. Looks like he was having a great time!
