Jeremy’s niece, S., turned 4 a few weeks ago and Vince and Edda got invited to her gymnastics themed birthday party. At Vince’s age, I remember being enrolled in gymnastics and trying over and over again to do a back hand spring. I’m still hoping that someday I’ll be able to do it – I can still do a mean cartwheel and each time we get invited somewhere with a sprung floor, I go ahead and try a cartwheel or two just to make sure I’ve still got it in me.
Vince had a fabulous time, but Edda didn’t like it so much. Sometimes I wish she could enjoy these regular kid things a little more, because even though everyone is very sweet and accommodating and everyone wants her to have a good time, Edda just doesn’t like it very much and wants to sit in a quiet corner and watch Dora on the iPod.
