As I may have mentioned on a few occasions, the Princess is a bit girly. And by “a bit,” I mean completely.
She once claimed she didn’t want to be a dancer because dancing made her ribs tired!? And I somehow passed up the opportunity to write post recapping the soccer season – I think I blocked the experience out of my memory – but let’s just say that the last game consisted of lots of tears and absolutely zero running until she realized there was a trophy at the end…anything for jewelry.
But that all changes when she steps into the dojo (That’s not the name in Tae Kwon Do, but it reminds me of the Karate Kid so deal with it TKD purists.). She becomes assertive and strong. She stays focused and doesn’t shy away from the physicality. She listens and understands the power of discipline.
Tae Kwan Do has quietly become our favorite Princess activity.
The other night The Princess broke her second board, and got her second yellow stripe, passing her test with an Axe Kick.
I didn’t include an entire 80’s montage, but I did catch the magic moments.
