Gymnastics ’08

Posted in Buggle Bite, Motherhood, Parenting, toddler at 8:24 pm by Momma

This last Saturday was Aidan’s first gymnastics class of 2008. Last year we had three two-week sessions that were M-Th. This year class is only on Saturday mornings at 9:30 for half an hour. Getting up and out of the house on Saturday mornings before 9:30 am for only half an hour is totally grounds for a Mommy of the Year Award! Just incase I haven’t given you enough reasons to nominate me! πŸ˜›

This year they have a new “instructor.” I put that in quotes because it’s a group of toddlers under the age of 3 what can you really “instruct?” The first day’s lesson plan was really quite comical. It’s obvious that she does not have children of her own. She tried to have all the children sit on the mat on individual color squares and “stretch.” Needless to say my child had his own agenda and it had NOTHING to do with color squares, stretching or warming up! Or much to do with her at all!

I had to laugh when she said, “boys and girls spread your legs as far as you can, this is called the straddle, can you say straddle?” Dad-Oh looked at me and said, “Aidan can’t even tell us when he’s pooped himself, I think straddle is aways away!” Seriously, straddle? Is that really a word you want your toddler running through the grocery store saying?

Regardless of the organized stretching, the vocab lesson, or the early start time Aidan had a blast and that folks, is exactly why I do it! πŸ˜›

    What a good mommy you are!

    I can’t wait to hear him saying “straddle, straddle, straddle, straddle, straddle!” the next time I see him (WHEN WILL THAT BE?!?!?!). πŸ˜†
