Madison, last week and most of this week, had an issue with the diving board. She’d belly-flopped and hurt her ribs the last time she’d gone off. So she was legitimately scared.
Today, she took that fear and made it work for her. She went off the board. She was shaking when she got out of the pool, but she had the biggest smile on her face. She wasn’t going to let fear get the best of her.
I’m so proud of my baby girl, and all that she accomplished. She might not have passed Level 3, because she wasn’t completely confident, but she went in there, ready to prove that she could do it, and that’s the most we could have asked of her!
