    Last Minute Level Downgrade

    SO, I think I get what you are saying. You are saying that with your daughter, if she was not as serious as she is, you would not be at the gym you are at. You would be a different gym, and celebrating her just the same as you do now. However, it sometimes does come across as harsh on kiddos...

    Stress Fracture Sesamoid Bone

    I fractured my sesamoid bone. I went 2 years before it finally got diagnosed. It was very painful. I was in a boot for over 6 months to heal it, and it healed completely. My sister had the same thing. Neither are gymnasts, our podiatrist said it is often genetic.

    Competition fees/expenses
