TLo starts the first grade in three weeks. She is absolutely dying to be a cheerleader.
Yes. You heard me. We live in Texas. They start cheerleading in the first grade.
Actually, to be honest, they start much earlier than that... I think at 3 or 4. It is totally ridiculous.
Now, I know all the song and dance about how cheerleading is really a sport and it's good for coordination and self-esteem and, you know, whatever. But I just can't quite get behind the whole cheerleading 6-year-olds thing.
Unless maybe they were planning on doing my all-time-favorite cheer:
You ain't got no alibi
I don't think they'll let six-year-olds do cheers from R-rated B-movies. Right? Oh well.
