The not-so-natural gymnast

I wish I’d had a camera rolling.

Abby wanted to do some gymnastics so Matt thought he’d help her try a handstand.

Next thing I knew, he was holding her in the air by her feet.

He told her, “Okay, now hold yourself up.”

And what did my child do?

She put her hands under her head and tried to physically lift her body into the air.

No hands on the floor at all.

Matt thought that maybe a headstand against the couch would be a better place to start.

Moments later her head was on the ground, as were her hands, and her feet were resting on the seat of the couch, two feet above her head.

And yet she still managed to scream, “Get me down from here!”

She may be in training for a very, very long time.
