Our little girl starts gymnastics lessons tonight. She is extremely excited. I told her on Monday as we were getting into the car after I picked her up at school. She screamed so loud that everyone on the playground must have thought I was kidnapping her or something. It's a good thing I had gotten out of the car and talked to her teacher before we left, so at least they would know I wasn't doing anything illegal. In the car she couldn't hold still and was bouncing on the see. Then she said something a bit disturbing. "Hurry up and get home, I need to break something." -huh?
So, it seems that she has a problem redirecting good energy/emotions as well as the bad emotions. I helped her through it and offered her options to this excitement and need to break something. She jumped around in the yard until she fell down and had to rest .
A little bit of disappointment, because she's coming down with a cold, but I am hoping she can still enjoy herself and is not feeling too bad when I pick her up from school.
