Gymnastics Girl!

Pin It Rory has started gymnastics!

I wasn't sure how I would do with her wanting to be in a gymnastics class. She had done little gym in Virginia, and was always very, very good at that; but a gymnastics was a little bit different....especially now that she's older and her discrepancy is larger.

Luckily, I have a wonderful husband that assures me she will be ok and I have the voice of Dr. Paley telling me that if I hold her back, she will learn to hold herself back (and that is something I never want her to do.)

So...we went to gymnastics and tried it out. I felt pretty nauseous the whole time!  She loved not wearing her lift and being in bare feet. I was so worried that something may happen- (and yes, I'm well aware that I will probably think This for the rest of my life.). But the only thing that happened was how absolutely amazing she was. She jumped in the class and it was as if had been doing it for years. 

 As her confidence and smile grew, my nauseous ness faded: And even though parents are more than likely supposed to watch quietly from the sidelines, I was a loud mom cheering and clapping for her daughter.  (Zin enjoyed watching too ;)

After the class and teachers came up and told us how they were amazed with her upper body strength is- which is what we have always been told.

I'm so glad we found something that she enjoys doing. I think this is the best physical therapy for her leg too...It also doesn't hurt that she gets to pick out a leotard; which if it was up to her she would not take off.

My daughters amaze me everyday...I am one proud mama!
