We play – Totem Tennis
We got this Totem Tennis set for Christmas. B was really hoping to get one after playing at preschool.
When we put up the set on Christmas day, B was hitting about 1 in every 5 balls that came past him. Then, his dad showed him how to play with one person and hit the ball first, forehand and then, backhand, to keep the ball moving all the time.
B was determined to learn to hit the ball just like Dad. Now, less than 2 weeks later, he has mastered the Totem Tennis and rarely misses when playing with one player. (This is the same persistence and determination I encounter when B wants something and I have to say ‘no’).
