Move Over Mary Lou

Wow. What a night. Our first time at Open Gym and Mommy's nerves were already shot at 4pm. Why? Cuz there's something about taking a certain unpredictable little girl into a certain unpredictable situation. I've done this before with not-so-grand results like big giant tears and and a runaway ballerina ...and you should have seen Soph ;). So it's been a few months and I think both of us were ready. I prayed the whole way there for an end to my anxiety and the ability to accept the outcome. The tomtom got us there at 6:33p and my little Mary Lou took to the gym like a little Chinese girl with a forged Birth Certificate. It was great. She was great. I was the typical freak Momma...with not just one camera around my neck, but two. And boy was it worth it. What a gift it was to have her big cousin, Kate there to play with, too. Thank you, Jesus. You're always better to me than I ever could be to myself.

Open Gym Admission $10
Babysitter to watch the littles $10
tomtom to get us there on time $90 (free shipping on Amazon)

Watching Big in all her proprioceptive bliss: PRICELESS

  1. I am so excited for Sophie!! I knew when I saw her doing backbends on my ottoman that she would love it! I wish I would have had the guts when I was a kid to join something like this. I was too shy and would scream for my mama! She's such a big girl!
