trythis Posted August 1, 2008 Report Share Posted August 1, 2008 We have one more week of summer vacation and DH and I were discussing the schedule this morning. The insanity of it all is really hitting us. We have two DD's one pretty serious, aged 11, dancing 10 hours a week plus rehearsals, and another aged 8 dancing three hours a week. With the times they get off their respective busses, and work schedules for me and my hubby, and dance, and getting them to and from the dance studio, and getting their homework done....the idea of a family dinner, which we have always tried to do, seems impossible. He especially just thinks this is crazy and he asked me why I thought it was a good idea. My honest answer was when we started all this I didn't know it would be like this. I didn't realize dance would take up every day of the week when our DD's were this young, and I didn't know it would be so expensive. I keep saying that if our girls were as talented in any other sport, and they were on a travel team, it would take as much time and it would cost as much. He says no way. Anyone with a non-dancing child have any input on this? Remind me again how much positive there is for my girls to get out of dancing, please.... I told him that as long as they want to do it, and as long as they maintain good grades, there is no reason to make any drastic changes. Quote Link to comment
