Have you ever done something for the first time and gotten the feeling that you were opening "a can or worms?" (Whatever that means...)
I felt that way yesterday when I took Emma to gymnastics for the first time. It was a day she had been looking forward to for about a year. She was so excited and not the least bit shy when we got there and met all the other little girls in her class. She jumped right in and I new then....she is hooked!
I wanted to take pictures but the parents were herded upstairs to a room overlooking the gym behind glass. It was so cute to see Emma peeking up at me with the biggest smile on her face! "Look at me mom" her smile and twinkling eyes shouted!
Watching her (and all the other little gymnists) instantly took me back to the day when I was in gymnastics. "I could do that" I thought. So when we got home and Emma was practicing her bridge, I decided it would be beneficial to just show her how to do it. It was then that I realized that I have a little girl mind in a grown person's body. The bridge wasn't happening! But I am quite sure I could still get on the uneven bars and do some twirls!
