    I have and her response was her six pack and put her hand over the general middle area.

    For Parents 'My core hurts when I kip'

    No she isn't new to kipping and she says no more core than normal. She's a repeating level 4

    For Parents 'My core hurts when I kip'

    DD told me this tonight. She is telling me kipping is painful. Any ideas? Not sure if this is form or medical or both.

    For Parents How often does your DS or DD watch gymnastics online (Youtube, Gymnastics website, etc.)?

    Rarely. But she's not big on sitting still. She'd rather being doing gym.

    WAG The 'private': does your gym offer them?

    Yes our gym does them. All you have to do is ask the coach and find a time that works.

    For Parents Bars at home

    I caved and got DD a low beam last year at Christmas. She used it for about two weeks. Now it sits in the living room being tripped over occasionally. Leave it in the gym.

    For Parents Cute points??? Do they exist?

    I think the judges like to see the younger girls having fun. So do I think they give a little more leeway, intentionally or not, to a grinning little girl? Yep. But not much.

    OT Makeup at meets?

    Glitter hairspray is a must. Other than that no. She doesn't even touch nail polish during the season.

    Spends more time on her hands than her feet TV is watched through 'windshield wipers' Time spent waiting for older brothers band concert to start is a great opportunity to practice handsprings and try and teach the other siblings cartwheels. Spelling word practice is done with each letter...

    WAG CGM Confession

    We are doing privates right now. DD self confidence on bars was so low that we knew she needed one on one time to break down the skills and show her she could do it. The mental game has been hard for about the last year so we did what we could to help her. Seems to be working in practice. We...

    For Parents Do you think we should switch?

    I would agree, based on your info, to a switch. That said have you checked out the gym in person? Or just called? I would check it out before I committed

    For Parents First meet--what do I need to know?

    You will sit there for approximately four hours to watch your kid actually compete for about a total of two minutes lol That said, bring things to do. Be prepared to cheer on all the girls on your DD team. Cash is king. Be prepared to be begged for raffle tickets. Bring a stadium seat if you...
