A trainer or a dictator?
This morning I got up and I had breakfast with my usual soy latte. After I felt like doing my work out. YES you read right, I really felt like it and I thought it was so weird. So I started the Wii and my daughter joined me. At around the same time my husband woke up. As usual when husband get back from work or just get up she rushes over to him and gets really hyper! You would give her an espresso and she wouldn’t get that much energy!
He is so great with her, doing what ever she wants to do, really listening to what she has to say, confirming to her that she is an important little princess. It’s really something that I wanted for her, to develop the self-confidence and love of herself that I always lacked.
When she saw that her daddy was getting up, she didn’t leave him the time to awake before she invited him to join us and do the yoga routine. He politely declined, she politely insisted a lot with a “I won’t take no for an answer “ kind of tone. He agreed knowing she wouldn’t leave him alone.loll
We started and suddenly the little princess turned into a trainer-dictator! The poor man couldn’t do anything right and the trainer wouldn’t stop talking for half a second. I can tell you the yoga wasn’t as relax as it should have been. So I didn’t have any choice but to laugh because every little move he was doing was wrong and she had to correct him and was too happy to tell him what to do and how to do it. So we had a good laugh (me especially) and when daughter invited him to stay for the step, he firmly said “no, I have to get in the shower” and he escaped.
She was not happy but still joined me and we did the step and dance together. She is such a wonderful child and we love her so much but she can be a little bossy at times, it must be a 4-year-old thing.
