As Lemon Cake gets older, we are trying to decide what classes and activities we should sign up for him. He is three years old and going to school every morning so I worry about over-scheduling him on the weekends. I can’t do week day afternoon classes since I also have baby Banana in tow. Right now we have him in swim class on a Saturday morning and waiting to hear back from a Chinese school if he got accepted into the Sunday afternoon program starting in the fall. That to me feels plenty already. However, I also know he enjoys gymnastic and music classes tremendously from the few classes we have attended here and there. So, to pick your brains:
- Are your preschoolers in extra curricula classes? If so, how many and what kind?
- Do you worry about over scheduling them?
- How do you decide what classes or activities your little ones should do? (Besides letting them choose- which is not always possible and might not work at this age)
- Any words of wisdom?
