Very few things make me feel proud
I am not one of those parents who actually thrive on my children competing. In fact I have never been a competitive by nature. So It’s not that my daughter came first place on the bars that puts a smile on my face.
It’s the fact that prior to going to the meet she was ready to quit and afraid. I didn’t want her to throw away all the gymnastic goodness because she was afraid. I told her just go out there do your best and if you still want to quit afterwards I would be okay with it.
It was great seeing her fall down and get back up again. It was even a better feeling watching her take first place on the bars. If a 5 yr old can learn to get back up anyone can. She inspires me to do my very best…

She’s only five Larry? Wow, she did so good and staring so young. My goodness, you must be so proud. Heck, I have tears in my eyes watching here because I can just imagine how happy you are that she’s doing what she loves.
Thank you so much for sharing this with us. She did SO good.
Thanks Adrienne, I should have known something was up when she was 2 balancing on her crib. I am very proud of her, I am just glad I am able to help her realize her passions 🙂
