     I brought my boys to their first Kung Fu lesson on Monday. It was mostly explanations of the Rules and the Basic Movements. When we left on Monday I was talking about doing it to. It'd be free for Mommy to join & than there would be competition as to who can belt first (for Austin). Also, I could help Xav. He needs the extra one-on-one that many of the smallish belted ones aren't old (mature) enough to give him.
     Tuesday was a bit too frustrating for me. They start out doing their Basics. That didn't take long until I was slightly fuming.... "Go slower! Count louder! If you are going to Instruct than you should be less sloppy and more precise on your movements! (I wanted to shout - thank God I didn't)" Yes, the mommy in me was wanting to take out the 8 year old purple belt.  And it only went downhill from there. The rest of the day they pair up with someone with a belt and practice their moves. Xav got a little girl who did NOT want to help him. She set cross legged on her fanny and was full of attitude but no advice. Austin got a Dad (father of Said Girl and the Purple Belt who Instructed today). He was great at showing him forms. I was watching the kids next to them. "I just did 500 Cat Stances" he proudly proclaimed as he kept doing them "Up to 800!" Which got a debate between him and Austin as to who had done more. I couldn't help but pipe up "Yes - but your 800 were sloppy and poor form. Your hand didn't pull back to Attention, your arms weren't poppping" I pointed this out to the Dad. 
    
     Yep, this class definitely needs a mommy....

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
