Chanelizing his energy

Since last year I am thinking of taking A to some music, Gym or Karate class. Music and gym class didn’t happen cuz hubby thinks I am making him sissy. Yes, he calls it making him “Nancy & Suzie” just like Frank in “Everybody loves Raymond”:-) And even though we had 2 weeks free karate class coupon, which A got as summer reading gift, we didn’t go there either cuz hubby said he might come home and start punching Gudiya.

Since few weeks A is into kicking & breaking things. I was thinking of taking him to karate class so that he can enjoy kicking instead of getting yelled at by me and we got another 2 week coupon again:-) Now I am not afraid of him kicking Gudiya either cuz if he dare to kick her or punch her, she doesn’t need me to defend her, well most of the time;-)

So I called and schedule a class for him. We all went there. He got the uniform and was really excited..




And Gudiya was


Because she wanted to do haiya too but they don’t take anyone under 4..

He is going there since almost a week and looks forward to the next class. Hubby thinks we shouldn’t go there because It doesn’t look good if we stop after 2 weeks. I think when they offer to give free classes, not everybody join afterwards, so its ok if we decide not to continue with them. I like the place and the teacher but it’s a bit far away.

Initially I was going to take him to place which is just on the next block. So sent Hubby to check out and schedule a free class there but they don’t take anyone under 5. Reason; they give reading material and kids under 5 can’t read. Hubby told him that he can so he is going there on Monday. This new place guy has trained police and Marine people and very serious about the training. He told hubby that they are not like other training places who gives a new belt every 3months.. They are very serious about the performance and gives one to one attention. I want A to learn something when you are paying so much for each class but more than that I want him to enjoy and have fun instead of sending him to a boot camp.

The place he goes now, the whole time he is saying haiya and giggling and all other parents giggle with him. No matter how many time they tell him “If someone is attacking you would you be laughing? No, right, so don’t laugh”. He stops for few minutes and forgets what they said and start giggling again. He is having fun:-) Its so much fun even watching him saying haiya & giggling:-)

We will go to the new place on Monday and if the guy is very strict, we won’t join and he will continue going to the other place otherwise we will start here from Monday..

And we are trying a gym class this week too:-) Its for both of them so Gudiya will be happy too:-)

Kodi's Mom said...

I am glad to see you are taking him to gym despite what your husband says...! the 'haiiya' place sounds totally cool. you can learn a lot in a place that stimulates such laughter!
btw, A can read?? did I miss that? or did you post abt it and I forgot?
cuz if he dare to kick her or punch her, she doesn’t need me to defend her,
Gudiya is one heck of a gal :) LOL

nz said...

hehehe...the karate place looks good and A looks so happy in that karate uniform. Its good to use the free coupons bcos we paid a lot of money for Aman to join Taikwondo cos I thought they should know self defence but he just couldnt cope, so I have pulled him out and will probably try again next year.

Looooove Gudiya's pic !

Asha: yeah, we will see tomorrow:-)I hope its not too kids class for them cuz if it is not challenging they do goofy stuff and 2 kids doing goofy things can cause chaos in the class;-) Next year I will put her in some karate class:-)

Sush: Well, its still not the regular action;-) We had very busy summer and I still have atleast 100 posts in my mind to be posted;-)I hope to post & visit blogs I used to:-) Right now I am even struggling with posting here but I hope to get done before the summer is over:-)

a little light: yeah next year but I can't imagine her in dance class..lol ;-) She will have fun kicking some butts in karate class though;-)

kodi's mom: oh no, he doesn't stop, he just give his "views";-)I would've started last year but It was hard for me to drag Gudiya & A and go there but this summer its better since she can enjoy things too:-) No matter what he say he always go with what I do;-)))))) Even if I decide to put him in a cooking class, he will tease A & me but he will go;-))

yes, he can read books by himself.. well most of it:-) I have to post about it but its in pending post list:-)

nz: yeah, its very expensive and even though coupon is for 2 weeks, we are gonna use it till today unless he doesn't like it at new place.
