One example that comes to mind is her performance in the Gymnastics Holiday Program last weekend. Since no one showed up from her Parent & Tot class (essentially free play), she was allowed to perform with her brother in his three-year old class. With only one half-hour rehearsal under her belt, she outshone kids who has been training all semester. It was truly amazing and I could not have been more proud.
My son, who is very bashful, is also coming into his own. Ever talented, he grows a little braver and a little more independent everyday. He is the son every mother longs for.
I am so thankful for my family, especially the two most important people in my life, my little ones. Even on the worst behaved, most sleep-deprived day, I wouldn't give up a moment!
