everytime when im driving around town i see signs for "cheerleading, ages 4 and up" "softball ages 4 and up" "dancing ages 4 and up" etc etc. my oldest is 4, and id love to get her involved in something like that. i wouldnt be able to afford it financially but if i were able to (and probably will soon) i would ask her if she wanted to do something like that. im hoping she picks dancing.. lol i think little girls in leotards and tights are so freakin cute.
how about you?

Not that young.
We do believe in team sports and had the kids try a variety of sports. I personally perfer team sports over individual sports because I belive there are wonderful life lessons to be had. I also believe in club sports over rec. sports... because of the life lessons. I think kids should start out in rec. sports (where everyone plays) but that real life lessons come from club where you have to earn a spot on the team and even though you are on the team you may not play every game. I think it teaches a TON.
I think dance and cheer are good sports... but they are not top on my list. I have HUGE ISSUE with some of those mothers. They are a different bread from sports moms. (no offence... not all but a good majority)

From 1 1/2 - 3, my son did Pre-gym. He has did Kindermusik for one session when he was two. From 2- 3 1/2, he did tae kwon do. At 4 we wanted to do t-ball. Since then he has done t-ball, soccer, football, and basketball every season. I think he has it narrowed down to just wanting to do football and basketball. He will also be joining the Boy Scouts in January and during the summers, he will be doing a Jr. Ranger program with the State Park. I like for him to experience a little bit of everything and let him decide which ones he likes best.
