first day at gymnastics, you know that she was quite the handful! Gymnastics started with a warm up activity and some stretching. My little Caroline wasn't having anything to do with that, and wanted to run straight for the trampoline. She was upset, tantruming, not listening, and we got off to a rough start. While the rest of the class went great, the cool down was again a challenge for her. Needless to say, this Mama was a bit nervous for class this week. LOL
commands (look at Mama, come to Mama, wait, go, etc), so she is getting good practice with this. We are also working on staying calm if things don't go her way. I acknowledge her feelings and tell her it is ok to get upset, but also let her know that we need to stay calm so we can think about how to fix the problem.
