Last Friday night, I decided to take the kids to open gym at NAAG to have some fun! The kids were super excited and could hardly stand it. We had never been to open gym. Upon getting there I knew it was going to be a full house. The parking lot was FILLED and we couldn't even get into the door because there were so many KIDS. I was a little apprehensive going into this, only because I had 4 little people and the kids going into this open gym were BIG teenage people. Thankfully my husband came along to help, I would have never been able to do it without him. After being there for a little while It calmed down and surprisingly the bigger kids were very courteous and polite, that made the evening even more pleasant. Nothing is worse than having a young child and older kids in the same "play" area... Immediate panic sets in, but I had nothing to worry about that evening, everyone got along great!
Hey, I even got a few twists and flips in... On the trampoline that is. I hate showing off at the age of 30 something... LOL Yes, I used to be a top gymnast, but after 2 kids and some added weight... your body just doesn't do what it used to. I had fun, and I got to show my kids that hey.... I am not "old" and that I still CAN play with them. Even after walking like a penguin the next day. Actually, I wasn't hardly soar at all. My kids slept in till almost 11am the next morning, so I think my mission was accomplished. I think open gym is going to be a staple in our home.
