I'm Green and I'm Grumpy

Ok so I am not really green.
So I am doing the dutiful stay at home wife and mother thing.
House is tidy.
Washing is done.
Healthy meal cooked. Ready early to allow for kids schedule.
Take son to try it out taekwondo session.
I knew as soon as we walked in that he wouldn't like it. Anything that requires effort and doesn't produce instant reward is no good. He has NO self-esteem, because he is no good at anything. BUT (and here's the biggy) how do you get to be good at anything if you QUIT everything????
I want so much for him to know the satisfaction of working hard at something and getting results. I love him to bits, but just don't know what to do with him at the moment. I am hoping that he will think about it and maybe give it a go.....or at least find some activity that will have him physically active.
Anyway I get home and find kids in front of SIMPSONS in the loungeroom. I hate simpsons and futurama and all that other animated CRAP that they watch.
Also dinner dishes not done.....
(told you I was grumpy)
Keep smiling,
