True Story

A conversation between a father and his three-year-old daughter overheard at Flips Gymnastics the other day.

Father: Honey, let's go in your class. It's starting now.
Daughter: Nooooooo! I don't wanna! I don't wanna!
F: Come on, let's just try it out.
D: Nooooooooo!!!!
F: Alright, then we're leaving...let's go.
D: No! I don't wanna leave!
F: Ok, well let's go in your class now.
F: Well, then we're going home.....let's go!
D: But I don't wanna go home!!!
Father is now not nearly as patient as when this whole thing started (I think I can actually see his ears turning red as all of the Moms look on and he tries with all of his will not to snatch the little girl up by the arm and drag her out)
F: Ok, why don't you just go in and try it out for just a minute.
D: I don't wanna! I don't wanna! I don't wanna! NOOOOO!!!!

F: FINE! But we made a deal...we're going home, you're going to your room and you're going to give me $200!!!

Absolutely hysterical! I had to fight so hard not to just burst out in laughter at this poor Dad. He was so frustrated and I really did feel for him, because I have been there. But to suggest that your three-year-old pay you back the $200 you spent on her gymnastics class because she refuses to go is just classic!

That is so funny! I have seen many moms (& dads) stressed like that at Flips. I just feel blessed mine don't act that least at Flips. :)

You did an amazing job last night! God has blessed you with such an amazing gift. Thanks for sharing it with us! :)
