Watching them though is amazing. I thought to myself, this is what I need. If I'm going to be the greatest superhero mother of all times, then I need to have some sort of fighting skill of my own.
I am now a White Belt...soon to be Orange Belt (if I past my test next month!)
Now, I am currently in a class that is meant for older people. I guess, in that term I should have realized older meant anyone in Junior High and above!
My first week in class I was the only student there who did not have to rely on their "parent" for a ride home because I am old enough to sport my minivan and drive away on my own! OH...here's the biggie! I realized that those young kids who already have their black belts are called Mr. or Mrs. so and so and I must respond to them by Sir or Ma'am or last name! That was hard to swallow!!!!
Ahhh....relief! A very wonderful mother was inspired by me to now join the class too! Ha, there are now two Superhero Mother's in training!
Watch out all the children in the world...get ready for me!
(P.S. Doing Tae Kwon Do is really great! I have had a blast even with the young en's around. The best part is watching the waistline wiggle it's way down!)
