Picture the scene a three year old at her first ballet show. She demonstrates her naughty toes and good toes for the oohing and awwwing collection of parents and carers. The seniors then come on to demonstrate their years of practise. That three year old then announces she can do better and the cute three year old insists on joining the seniors.
That was the end of her dancing carreer. Her mum was told ‘dancing was not Emma’s thing’
Chloe has fared far better at dancing than me. She has the grace I never had. She has the poise I never had. I became a hockey player which I loved. I loved the fast paced game and played for a local club. Chloe has always rejected hockey. Said it was rubbish.
However Chloe is incredibly sporty and a PE teachers dream. She has her sports colours already and the PE teachers fighting amongst themselves over whether she attends rugby or hockey practise. Chloe came home a week ago informing me that her hockey teacher had been encouraging her to go to training and join the team. Therefore Chloe gave rugby a miss and went to hockey instead. I whooped with delight when she told me that she had loved it. She wanted her own hockey stick! I am ever so slighty thrilled that she is a little bit like me afterall! This weekend she has barely put her stick down.
Watching Chloe playing in the garden remnds me of myself at her age. I was always doing sport and wish I’d kept it up. One concern for sporty teenagers is sweating and being a bit whiffy after sport. Thankfully Green People have come up with an organic deodorant that is scented with vanilla, orange and lemon to keep young skin fresh all day long. Chloe has been using Oy! for the past few weeks she likes the scent and I am happy knowing its gentle on her skin.
