As I have mentioned before, Stella loves gymnastics and has been going to a weekly class since she was 1-1/2. We have been watching the Olympics all weekend and I have to admit, I sometimes wonder if Stella has Olympic potential. Now, I would never go all “stage-mom” on my daughter (I experienced that enough in my many years of ballet), but I think it is pretty natural to think your child is pretty darn good and filled with all the potential in the world.
For now, Stella and I will watch the gymnasts compete on TV and just enjoy it all for what it is. Her weekly Gym Class is fun and more of a play time than anything else. No reason to think otherwise – but a mommy can’t help to dream.
