I have three kids, as you all know, and none of them play sports. Ryan is more into cars than football. Kasi would rather draw then play softball or tennis. And Brandi is my drama child. She would rather sing, dance, and act than do just about anything else. I have a feeling that someday, somehow, this child is going to end up starring in her own sitcom. Knowing her, it will probably be something she writes and directs herself. She is not only dramatic. She is opinionated and stubborn, and I can't see her taking direction well, which means she will be doing it all herself. I say, more power to her. She just needs to remember her mother when she gets famous.
All three of my kids love to play games on the computer, and on the wii and Playstation. They have no problem picking up a tennis racket to play on the wii or sitting on my computer and playing ronaldo
online. I know that I should make them do more stuff outdoors, but I was always an inside kid myself, so it's easy for me to understand their unwillingness to be outside, especially with all the games and such available online. I remember as a preteen spending the summer in my room, reading one book after another. I did go outside to swim, and once I got into the pool it was very hard to get me out of it. My kids love to swim, too. Well, my girls do. Ryan is sixteen now, and if it doesn't have a motor and four wheels, he has no interest in it whatsoever.
Brandi did join the community service club at her school, and once a month they will walk from the school to a local nursing home to help out. That counts as exercise, right?
