Re: SUCH a proud mama! UPDATED post 3.....and now sad mama....

Can they take a cell phone video, then upload to You Tube??? You would be able to see it really quickly thereafter with that.

That's awesome mama! You should be SO proud!

I think you're making the right choice to go. Marriages need nurturing too, and this will be a good thing for you and your hubby. Happy parents make happier families. And yes, make sure they video it! And have your daughter call you right after to tell you how it went Have an awesome weekend.

athletes - and yes, even an 8 year old is an "athlete"!! - need to be responsible and accountable for their own performances. Often, when mom is around, it is more distracting, and emotional control is LESS than if the athlete is away at a meet just with the Coach.

Explain to her that you believe in her and you know that she is a strong young lady - you know she can do her best and that doesn't depend on you being there. Watch on livestream, text, have a party to celelbrate whatever the outcome...

The fact that she has been able to get this far shows how much of an awesome parent you are - it takes a lot to get that far in sport...good job!!!

Enjoy your trip - and good luck to your daughter!
Thanks mama! This helps a lot. My mom is going to try to video it.

I took her with me today to get a mani and pedi. She told me she understands.

Ok, we are on our way! We had to leave for the airport the same my mom and she had to leave so I was able to get her up and see her off. I talked to her when they got there before she had warm ups. Once we landed in our layover city ( where we are now) I called her to see how it went . She did great, even being the only 8 year old she had gained on a couple of other swimmers. Their relay almost didn't swim b/c one of the girls was sick, but they had an alternate there thankfully. She is a sister of another girl in the relay and I'm not sure if she was there as an alternate or to see her sister swim.
