Will I ever learn ...

Today I took the twins to a trial music class for 2 year olds. I had spoken to the organisation earlier and told them that Hannah had DS. They seemed very open to that - I outlined some issues that they may notice in a typical music class - such as all the other toddlers can jump but Hannah hasn't got the hip stability as yet although she does try! Also she may need longer to process instructions, may have trouble keeping up, may get tired and isn't talking as typical 2 year olds as yet ...

Well - Hannah loved it - she kept up pretty well too - she loved doing the actions to the songs the best. Kit was more clingy and refused to participate in actions and dance bits although he loved storytime and playing the instruments. So there you have it - the class was far easier for Hannah and I know that she really enjoyed it - but not quite so successful for Kit although he did like parts of it. It is quite expensive so now my quandary is to sign up for a term or not?

oh how funny that it was Kit who wasn't as in to it instead of Hannah! Just when you think you know which kid is going to do what they switch on you :) Decisions decisions now! Do you think Kit might warm up if you give this a try and go back consistently? Maybe it was just a first day jitters?

I know how you feel! It's hard to decide whether or not to continue some of these classes. Sometimes there is so much going on, sometimes there isn't enough going on! The one class we take Jaden to, every week is his Gymnastics Class. HE LOVES IT! It has been great for him and the teacher is amazing. I say give it one more try, then look for another class that may better suit them at this age.
