Does Your Toddler’s Independence Make You Sad?

Does Your Toddler’s Independence Make You Sad?

Submitted by on June 26, 2012 Website: www.parents.com

Today my heart broke a little bit. That’s because I took Fia to her gymnastics class. We go every week. But today was different. Today she went to the “big girl” class.

Coach Sam told me awhile back to get on the waiting list for the next level up. He said he thought she was ready. I read Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and I hated that woman. But in that moment, standing by the uneven bars with her swinging steadily, I got a glimpse of my inner Tiger.
