THE CHRONICLE OF LIL' TIGER! ~ Part 9 ~ Yellow Belt, Lil' Tiger Revealed at last, and No Soup for you!

Well never fear Lil' Tiger Chronicle lovers, the Chronicles are here to stay! The other day after announcing there would be no more my phone and email were flooded with questions and tears from faithful readers. I appologize to the one inmate from the Alabama correctional facilty that I could not accept your collect call, but never fear FFF did get your email about keeping the chronicles going. :lol:
Well lets get started!

1st off, Dragon kid found out on Wednesday that she made her yellow belt!!! :D She was very excited, but after watching her I had no doubt she would get it.... What concerns me is that one of the instructors pulled her aside yesterday and told her she did "So Well" that a couple of the Masters feel she should get involved in the sparring class right away. It doesn't cost anymore money or anything, but I am still a little nervous about seeing my oldest daughter getting kicked in the face :lol:
I would hate to see her go from this:

....before sparing
to this:
PIC_really_ugly_face.jpg

....after sparing? :lol:

In all seriousness though, we will more then likely let her do it if she has the desire to do so.

Now on to Lil' Tiger. Her week went by really well. We continue to be very proud of her and her progression (when it comes to listening, etc). At home she has been a great little gal, and loves to help out with baby sis. Tuesday her day went great and after class she sprinted down to the Mexican Donut shop... But to my suprise, she wanted a "Mexican Muffin" instead! WOW, tears came to my eyes as I thought about how fast my Lil' Tiger was growing up :lol: She got her muffin and devoured it in record time on the way home. There were no stickers today or little pieces of tape, but she didn't seem to mind. Another thing I am proud of is that all the adults in the class always do a 'subtle bow' before and when leaving the Dojang matts. Tuesday LT did it all on her own without anyone telling her :D When we got home it was too early to start dinner so I spied my nunchucks and decided to go out into the front yard to 'show off my mad skilz' and have a brew or two. Lil' Tiger followed me outside as well as the rest of the family (mom brought her camera). Lil' Tiger wanted to try the nunchucks too so I let her hold them. Her big sister (dragonkid) said to her; "Hey, you don't know how to do that! Your gonna hurt yourself!" To all of our suprise LT grabs the nunchucks and held them in a pose and then gave big sis one of her 'famous dirty "I can too" looks' :lol:
Mom was able to catch it on film:

...Lil' Tiger gives big sis her 'evil eye' :D

On Thursday I have no idea what happened. She was doing great in class then the last 10 mins or so, she just reverted back to her 1st week self. She crawled when she should of walked, responded slower then the rest of the kids to the teacher's instructions, and was an all around little poop head. Well I didn't say anything to her inside the Dojang but I was steaming mad at her. I tried to think of what to say to her when we got outside, but my lack of a dollar in my pocket gave me the solution of what to do. She turned to run towards the Mexican donut shop and I scooped her up and put her in the car. She said; "My muffin! My Donut!". Once I buckled her in I said to her in a calm soft soft; "You were not being a very good girl today in class, so today I am not going to get you a muffin". She looked up at me and I expected her to start screaming and crying, but instead she said; "I don't get a muffin today, I was bad" :vu:
WOW was I shocked! She usually throws a hissy fit when she don't get something she really really wants, but on Thursday she really showed maturity in the way she realized that she did something wrong, and lived up to the punishment. Gosh I was so proud of her response I almost went and got her the Muffin anyways :lol:

Well thats it for Lil' Tiger this week, I look forward to writing more Pulse Pounding action of LT next week:D

Year of the RAT!

I forsee that next week will be a time of learning new skills. It will also be a good week to ask for that promotion at work you deserve. Eat fish at least twice during the week, your local fish market will thank you. Avoid people with chipped teeth. What ever you do, do Not eat any Piminto Loaf Bologna! (there is a bad batch out there with your name on it). Watch an infomercial this week, you will find something useful. Pull that 'wild hair' that you see every once in a while in the mirror...You may only notice it once a month, but others have to look at it every day :lol:

Your lucky numbers next week are: 1-7-18-23-28-34



TIPS FROM 'THE MASTER'!

Looking for help with this section. FFF has a "staff" of 64, but sadly enuff none of us are true "masters". What we are looking for here is one of YOU out there that is at least a black belt, and perferably an instructor in the MA that we know and love. We wish to print here weekly a 'tip or two' from a true master. It could be tips on forms, weapons, self defense, or even streching. It will be totally up to YOU what you submit here. This will be YOUR section in the Newsletter and you can remain Anonymous if you wish too.
If you are interested please send a Private Message to FFF.


EDITOR NOTE!

Please feel free to drop a line on this thread and let us know what you thought. We are always looking for ways to make the newsletter better, so please let us know any tips or suggestions you may have. Plus, please send us your TDK related pix's for the newsletter.

OOPS, almost forgot!

Was gonna post this funny pix of Lil' Tiger too in the newsletter (but their is a 10K limit to words and also a limit on pix/smiley's ect).

When she started spinning around the nunchucks my wife took the pix of her spinning them. She has a digital camera (brand new) so I thought the picture would be "Still motion" and not have any blurs or anything.... Funny thing is, the spinning motion captured on film makes the chucks look "rubbery"... (they are solid wood though). Just thought is was cute and funny and wanted to share it with you all :D :D :D

...Lil' Tiger struts her 'mad-chucks skilz" :lol:
