I recently had an idea that I wanted to sign my Doll up for some dance classes. She is old enough for them, and with a quick google search I found >10 studios in the area! (And many more with a little driving.) I called all of them. Each one. Not one has any classes available on the weekends for children that young. All of the classes are offered on weekdays, right in mid-day (11AM-2PM). There is no way I could make that work. ::Working Mom guilt explosion::
Thought: My child will just have to be deprived of life's pleasures such as dancing, her life is ruined!!
Feeling: Guilt and sadness
Restructure to: My child has many pleasures in life, but dance class will not be one of them at this point.
CBTing myself didn't quite work...I am still writing this blog, feeling deflated. Oh well, life goes on.
