My daughter is a level 10 gymnast and while I thought i'd get used to all the stuff she does - I haven't. The harder her skills get, the more time I spend with my eyes closed. To tell you the honest truth, I've been present at every meet she has ever had, but I don't think I've had my eyes open for a full meet since she was a level 6.

1st welcome to the CB. Its very nice to have moms with girls who have made it to the top!!! My gymmie is training L8 and I know I can hold my breath for an entire beam routine----ok, not that its so scary--just the falls off in a meet. Of course, now, I'm watching the bhs series and back tuck attempts-----yikes!

Happened to take today off and went to watch the end of practice. Regular coach was gone and they had a guy "subbing"(he's been there before). There goes my child doing her 1st ever bail(?sp) with no spot(yes plenty of mats). Jumped down thrilled with herself. I just gulped!!!! I'm beginning to know exactly where you're coming from:)
