Ki's going out for a major part in the school play. She plays soccer with practice to be 1-2 days a week and a game every weekend. She'll start horse riding lessons in a few weeks once it gets a bit cooler. Plus homework, caring for her dog and life in general. Add in splitting her time 50/50 between here and her dad's (we've been split a little over 5 months now). She's 7 and in 2nd grade. When asked about it, she says "I got this". I figure let her try. Her biggest argument, well not argument since we just had a regular conversation about it, but her biggest I don't know, reason (?) was "I almost died when I was 5 and would have missed everything. I want to do everything". Kid has a helluva point. And a damn good head on her shoulders. She shows maturity, reasoning, responsibility far beyond her years. Spent her summer on 2nd-3rd grade workbooks to get a head start on the school year, her choice. I do worry she's putting too much on herself though.
So. When it comes to your own kids, when do you say "ok, that's enough"?
