Not Me! Monday

Mckmama- Not Me Monday

I have not decided that now that I'm getting old...too old at times...I'm finding things that I wish I would have tried when I was young...that I wish I would have thought about doing.  I guess that's part of being an adult, you think?  I can't really call these thoughts regrets...because that's not the case at all.  Only...thoughts of how I may have enjoyed these things, had I but tried them.  Do you do that, or am I just weird?

I notice this happening more than ever while spending time around my kids.  I was just talking the other day about how the kids gymnastics teachers really should offer a once a week class for old people like me, who are totally not fit enough or coordinated enough to make those gymnastics moves look as easy as the kids do...but who have that crazy desire to try it out...just to see.  {Grins} YES, I for one would definitely be the laughing stock of all there...but that'd be the good part about the "special" class.  Have I totally lost my mind?!  Do you ever think these things??  I can see where the thoughts come from about parents "living" through their kids...but it's opposite for me.  I don't push my kids to do the things I didn't or couldn't do...I let them choose, and as I see them enjoying it, it makes me think about whether or not I would have enjoyed it or been good at it.  Does that make sense?  I hope so...I would like to think I'm not totally crazy!

And, since I don't have the opportunity to try (not) to kill myself in gymnastics as an almost 30 year old, I picked up a pencil this morning to try art with Katie.  Things look so easy, until I try them...then I'm reminded that I really have no idea what I'm doing!  LOL  Oh, well!  I did attempt...FAIL...

 Maybe I should stick to what I know... ;-) Where did I put that flute??  haha {kidding, well mostly kidding}
