I've come to terms with Emily being in a "real" gymnastics class. She loves it and seems to be getting better with each class. Here are some highlights from class today. This is also my first attempt with editing a movie - so be sure to check out the title (oohhhhh), fades (aahhhh), and even the caption (wow).
I've also realized today that when you're making new friends there are some people you can weed out immediately. Like this one mom whose daughter is in the class. Not only does the daughter not seem that into it (evidenced by tantrum throwing and running away), but the mom is totally pushing her (admittedly my perception). Here's the thing - when you're in the waiting room you can see the older girls practicing through windows. This mom says to her daughter (who is probably just 2), "oohhhhh, look at how strong those girls legs are! You want strong legs like that, right ___? Those are great legs, good strong legs. You're gonna be bottom heavy honey, so you'll have to work hard to get those strong legs." WTF!!?? Her daughter is 2! I'm being totally judgemental here and I am nowhere near a perfect parent. And I'm sure in some way I will emotionally damage my children. But for now, I can sleep at night knowing I'm not so blatantly obvious about it! Sheesh.
