When did taking a day off from sports become punishment?

My overachieving daughter has a lot on her plate. For an 8-year old, she is very, very active. I wanted her to take a day off. It would have allowed us to relax and do some house cleaning. Well, when I told her she couldn't go to water polo, she pulled on the tears. Well, almost. She hadn't had a snack since school ended, so I offered her some pieces of pear and apple and we took her to the pool. The one condition was that she only stay for one hour. Well, they were the only kids in their group, the other 3 kids were from the experienced group. That's not what one calls a full house!

Can't wait for her dr's visit next week to find out if we are doing right by her.
