Saturday after Maisie’s competition and then TOPs practice Maisie was tired, more so mentally than physically but enough so that she got a good nights sleep, YEAH! Saturday was such a long day of concentrating and being very focused it was good that Sunday was just a quiet day at home for us. We spent the morning and into the early afternoon in our p.j’s, playing together and watching…are you ready for this…gymnastics.
Maisie is NOT a television watcher and easily goes days and days without turning on the t.v., watching a show, movie or video but I knew that she’d love watching the “big” girls compete at the 2011 Visa Championships so I recorded it for her. Maisie really enjoyed watching the gymnastics and couldn’t get enough but she was funny. Maisie would watch for a while, hit the pause button, run off and try a few skills, sit back down, rewind, watch some more, pause, run off, do some more gymnastics, return, repeat, rewind. Never one to sit still for very long, Maisie enjoyed her time and I was tired just watching her.
Maisie already has a dream and says that she wants to do what the big girls do, compete on television and go to the Olympics. I have to say that she loves the sport, being at the gym and doing the work. With Maisie, the tougher it gets the more she pushes and enjoys the challenge. She is one driven little 5 year old and as long as she loves it, is doing it in a safe way, is a good girl and keeps her grades up in school…she’ll be doing gymnastics for as long as she chooses.
