the tension!

Its the knucklehead’s biggest ever gymnastics competition tomorrow- the national gymnastics games for pre-level to level 3 and last year he JUST missed qualifying for nationals.
I am trying very hard to be calm for his sake, but I’m nervous as hell. I am doing everything in my power not to think about Saturday because when I do its instant butterflies!
But it IS a national competition!
I CANNOT imagine how he must be feeling, he seems remarkably calm to most people, but I know him well enough to be able to tell the difference between his nervous silence & just plain calm…
But it IS a national competition!
The competition is huge logistically too, over 1000 gymnasts competing in just 2 days. I must say to the organisers credit, they do remarkably well keeping everything on time and on track.
I pray for the knucklehead’s sake that he’ll do well, maybe even bring home a medal. But I don’t want to say anything because his disappointment when he doesn’t get one is palpable! At the same time – I don’t want him to think that I’m not supporting him when I don’t say anything about medals…
But it’s a national competition!
Help!

    Cannot wait for an update of your son’s performance! My little one is 20 months old and I think he might be a born gymnast too. Well, we need to wait until he is three years old to see that…
