I got the shock of my life tonight when the owner of the gym approached me and asked me to enroll my little dd (age 4) in in the preschool advanced (invite only) class!:DI am so proud of her...she has a mild physical disability and has worked so hard the past year in her class...never thought she'd progress out of rec classes and now she is on the track for team!!!

So...I may end up with 2 on team someday!!;) wild!!! Better start saving now!

(I seriously don't think I could BE any more proud of my little DD):D:D

CONGRATS TO HER AND YOU!!!:eek: My younger one has a processing disability -struggling in school but always at home in a gym. In ways I do think it helped in that she didnt understand the drills or want to spend time on them but, wanted to just throw the whole skill and fearlessly accomplished things that took others awhile to accomplish. She was very lucky to have the natural ability to do this.

Madigym,

I think I know just how you feel. My DD also has some mild issues as a result from a traumatic birth. We never could imagine that she would be in the gym, let alone on a team. I still cry when I watch her sometimes, shocked at what she was able to accomplish. I have found that being in the gym in those early rec classes forced her to use both arms/legs equally, and only I can pick up the slight difference now. CONGRATS to your daughter on her advancements. Children are amazing sometimes aren't they?

It DOES NOT get much better than this, flippy!

And thanks to Blackie and Gotgym for sharing your stories, too...I too had tears in my eyes as I drove home from the gym with my little gymnast!!!:)

DD's doctor recommended gym last year as a way to work on her coordination...older DD also joined just for the ride, started to LOVE gymnastics, and progressed through to team. I always figured little DD would just struggle to keep up and stay in the same class forever and again, I am JUST so proud of her :D(did I mention that already?):D

I really hope that this is a confidence builder for her, too!!!

Awwww...this just gives me the warm fuzzies! :goodvibes:

It just goes to show you, NEVER assume your kids will not be capable of accomplishing certain things! There's ALWAYS hope, and there will be many chances for them to conquer things that we don't even dare dream about! :yes:

Good for her. Sounds like she's a great kid, and really puts her 'all' into whatever she's doing. :applause:

That's what makes a great competitor, no matter what the activity, skill, or level! :thumbsup:
