The Fall

As a Mom, you always struggle with wondering if you’re doing the right thing for your child or not.

We’ve encouraged you to join the Orchestra program in Ottawa, for youth.  You were supposed to have an audition, and then you weren’t and then you were and now we just don’t know.  You’ve been taking piano/xylophone lessons from a friend of ours, Allyssa.  She’s teaching basic piano scales and when you went to music camp last week, they just happened to have a xylophone. And you picked it up rather quickly.  So now you start in the fall. And if you’re good enough, they’ll invite you to join their orchestra.


We’ve also encouraged you in gymnastics. Dad took you down to the competitive gym and you tried out for the coach. He said you were close, but because you didn’t have any experience in rings or the pommel horse, you’d be placed into intermediate. Which is cool. Because next year you  might be good enough for competitive.

But the question is, how far do we push? Are we pushing? I think about the homeschooling this year and I’m looking forward to it again. I mean, I wasn’t sure at first, but then when you were gone to camp for a week, it was hard to deal with. We weren’t getting your ‘best’ when you came home at the end of the day. And that sucks.

We keep telling you to rock it out. Because you just might get a scholarship. And you might. It would help.  Then you could study science anywhere you like.

We believe in you.

And I’m sorry in advance if I messed this whole thing up.

I love you.
