Complete Failure, Total Win
My son wanted to go play tennis again, today. I agreed; but, before going, we went to buy a third tennis racket, a small one for the four-year-old. As a father, I know how important it is to make kids exercise so that they'll tire out and sleep without a fuss.
Well, I completely failed as a coach to get her to play tennis. She hit a few balls; but, after many, many tries. She still felt frustrated about it. I told her she would get better as she gets older.
On the other hand, as a parent, I did pretty good. This is one of those things she'll remember and beg to go do again. She's very proud of her tennis racket. She was very grateful for her "gift".
My son was a good sport in allowing me to play with her some during little breaks in our play. He even took the photos.
