Now normally I would not feel compelled to spend lots of money putting my kid into classes, but we spend alot of time at home right now. Too much really, and I'm not expecting that to get much better in January which is my EDD. I want my DD to be able to have something special that only <b>she</b> gets to do, I think it would help with the transition from being my only child to being the big sister. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/energy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Energy"> So, I'm trying to decide between creative dance, or gymastics (she's 3 so not old enough for Martial arts or sports yet). Both are expensive, but I think we'll be channeling all of her Christmas money from reletives (we are military so we don't live close to anyone) into paying for a few months of classes. I showed her the gymastics and she seemed intrigued but the dance classes showed little girls in ballerina outfits and just the idea of wearing girly stuff made her excited. I'm reluctent to do "girly girl" stuff, because she's very tomboy even at 3yo, but that's what she wants. I'm also reluctant because the dance girls have a recital at the end, but the gym kids have no pressure put on them to peform, they just get to go and learn how to tumble, etc. So, do I give in to what she wants to do even though I think she will end up bored and acting up in class? OR do I go with what I know she will enjoy?
