Scheduling Kiddos


As September is looming and my first born is getting older {2 1/2 years old already! Oy!}, everyone seems to be registering their kidlets in various activities. 

EZ is OBSESSED with playing in his backyard. He loves to play hockey, soccer, baseball, basketball -- anything that has a ball of some sort.

So far, I have my son registered in a Sportball program on Saturdays for 45 mins. I also plan to register him for swimming, skating and indoor soccer.  

But as I calculate the time spent on these activities, let alone the cost, it begs the question - how much is too much? 

I have to say that my son has a natural talent for sports that I want to encourage and develop, and he's a smart kid {I'm his mummy so I can say such things :) but he will also tell you he's smart because he has "big brains". I kid you not, ask him!}.  

So my not-so-melodramatic dilemma is do I let him try activities what he wants to try? Do I let him choose just one sport?

I'm a newbie at this, so I'm willing to take any good advice anyone has got to offer!

Every family and every kid is different! You know your son and how much he can handle. I know my girls wouldn't have been able to handle the structure of extra-curricular activities at 2 1/2...maybe just one? Maybe start with one thing and see how he handles it?
