My friend and coworker, Niki Pocock, was a dancer from the time she was a little girl. Since she has a young daughter, our conversation often turns to our daughters. Her toddler is just starting to test the waters of children’s activities; my teenager has been through dance, soccer, gymnastics, cheerleading, a few I have probably forgotten (but definitely paid for) and is now back at dance. Her daughter is “little,” mine is “big,” but Niki and I both share big dreams for our children to find some path that brings them joy.
I appreciate Niki’s guest post, in which she shares her experiences thus far in the world of children’s activities (and parents’ pocketbooks). Niki blogs at It’s All Wrong and you can find her on Twitter here: @NikiPocock.
