An activity too many?

November 18, 2015

Roo came home from school this afternoon with a permission slip to take part in a gymnastics after school activity on Mondays starting this coming week. I asked her whether she wanted to take part in the activity which of course she did, so I sat and looked at the permission slip and wondered if this was an activity too many.

Roo currently has quite a full schedule of activities as it is…

Monday – Possibly gymnastics
Tuesday – Football and Cub Scouts
Wednesday – Tag Rugby (lunchtime)
Thursday – PE and Circus Skills
Friday – Choir (lunchtime)

The thing is Roo loves school and everything that it offers however between Piglet arriving in the next week or so and collecting Tigger at normal school time heading having to head back out to go and get Roo it can be a little much for me, especially as I won’t be able to drive for at least six weeks.

I feel guilty that I am possibly stopping her doing activities just because it is inconvenient for me. Am I being a mean Mummy be thinking of saying no to adding yet another activity to our week?
