  • We pay for everything , my kids dont have 'special needs' so no one helps us. My oldest son does football , youngest is in basketball and plays the drums in school. My daughter does jazz,tap,and hip-hop dancing.

  • Yes, DD4 takes ballet and swim lessons. I'll probably start DS2 with swim lessons also in the fall... no activities for the summer...plenty to do around here with nice weather.

  • Yes. Right now just baseball for my older son. Next year both of my boys will be involved with baseball. Still not sure what we will be doing with our youngest. Gramsmom, I don't get that first response either.

  • Our children are all under 5. None of them are in any extra activities. They have each other to play with; why would I pay for them to play with other kids? Lol

  • Yes my 5 year old does Karate, and my younger son will too when he turns 4. I would also like to get them into some music lessons, but I will probably wait until they are a little older.
