Frustrated

Dear Internet,

Have you ever had a child who wanted to be in an extracurricular activity? Then when it was time to go, said child didn't want to go but had fun when she got there? So much fun that she talked about it, showed off everything she learned, and refused to stand still--until it was time to go again? Same song, second verse. "I don't want to go. It's boring. I'm tired, hot, sore (insert adjective here)." Then afterwards, "Look what we learned tonight. We got to do (fill in a plethora of activities here) at class. When do we order my leotard?"

What did you do with said child who drives you to distraction because she loves the class but doesn't want to go, especially when it interferes with her social life? Any helpful tips or ideas are beggingly requested.

Sincerely,

Frustrated Momma Who Is Paying Lots of Money For This Extracurricular Activity
