Are you watching the Olympics? I love it and often sit here making remarks like “If Eliza were in that contest…..”
If stripping was an Olympic sport, Eliza would win Gold every single time. In under twenty seconds she can undress and sit back on the couch, remote control in hand and Mickey Mouse on TV yet this is the child that simply can not undress herself for bed or PE at school…..
Flapping!!! Another Gold, she seriously looks like she would take off sometimes. Flappy when happy though, beautiful smile she has and when she is laughing she has a dimple that is super cute. I wonder if she could flap through high jump, she definitely has the long legs. We tried Gymnastics before with her, she told me how bored she was after only 2 sessions.
Sprinting, well I think we would all have gold medalists on our hands. Someone opens a bag of crisps and whoosh, she is off like a highly trained sniffer dog! Don’t ever forget how fast they go from ‘dead weight laying on the floor refusing to move’ to someone that would give Usain Bolt a run for his money at the blink of an eye.
Shot Put is another. Wow, how I have seen iPad’s and juice cups fly. Not to mention shoes, DS consoles, remote controls, siblings….
A judo/wrestling combo is something that happens daily in our house between Eliza and Noah. That grabbing of clothes, linking legs and throwing each other on the floor. Usually to decide who gets the TV remote or the last pack of crisps. Oh or a toy that neither of them played with for months yet one of them found and it’s suddenly like treasure!
Weightlifting I think belongs to us parents. Lifting that ‘dead weight’ child from the middle of roads, car parks, parks and bundling them safely in the car. Carrying them up the stairs or removing them from the top of a sibling they are sat on. I should have muscles like Popeye by now.
I love to reflect and I have learnt many things from what I have just written above…
– I watch too much Olympics
– A lot of issues are caused by crisps
– I need to get out more
Enjoy your Tuesday and the Olympics xxx
