Held Back

Finn started Gymboree this week.   We were all geared up in a special fuzzy sweatsuit.   His good friend, Anna, was in the class too.   It was a Level 4 class, which he is young for, but he is walking and clearly advanced so Mommy thought no sweat. 

 He liked  clapping hands, shaking his sillies out and the oodles of bubbles from the special bubble horn, but when we moved on to the “equipment” he wanted no part of the climbing.   And the parachute … forget it.   All those bright colors floating in the air,  a look of terror crossed his little face.   

Miss Gail gently suggested that we try the Level 3 class until he gets warmed up.   So there you have it folks.    Finn is being “held back”.   Lesson 1 from Gymboree – aim low.

For his troubles,  Mommy got Finn one of the special bubble horns, which was clearly invented by some genius Mommy who realized quickly that five bubbles out of a flimsy wand was not going to cut it.    As we reviewed our day and demotion with Daddy,  hundreds of tiny bubbles floated about the kitchen.    The Captain said, “At least the bubbles are good.   It is like the Lawrence Welk show.  Does Finn have a cranberry velvet tux and ruffled shirt he can wear?”
