When my son brought home from school a leaflet for a lunchtime football club I didn't for 1 minute consider sending him. So many reasons why:
1) I just didn't think he'd want to go. We've been to a Saturday morning club before and he refused to join in.
2) He cries when we have a kick-about outside because nobody let's him have the ball!
3) He would probably forget to go.
For all those reasons and more I didn't fill the form in. So I was surprised on Monday morning to find out my son took himself off to football club on Friday lunchtime! Apparently, "he had a great time". (That explains why he came home covered in grass-stains.)
Embarrassed at being told "if he wants to go you'll have to pay" I took myself off to the school office for the forms. Valuable lesson learnt. If I think he won't like something, he'll love it!
