A little girl named Brooklyn stepped on stage for her big gymnastics tumbling routine. But before the performance could begin, this precious child insisted on finding her Daddy in the crowd to ensure he was watching!
For the most part, children growing up are attached to their parents, not wanting to leave their side for more than a moment at a time. It makes sense, right? Parents provide their children with food, clothes, unconditional love and protection.
Who wouldn't want to keep a close eye on that person? And this special bond made for a sweet moment at one little girl’s gymnastics tumbling routine!
Sweet Moment Before Gymnastics Tumbling Routine
The video posted on Catapult Movement's Facebook page shows the adorable child, who wears a red leotard, being led by the hand to the beginning of her floor exercise. Ahead of the gymnastics tumbling routine, the child and her instructor stand and wave at the crowd, who responds with a hearty round of applause.
The child makes it over the first hurdle, but then tragedy strikes. She is immediately overwhelmed, placing her hands on her face. It doesn't look good for the rest of her routine. The people looking on even let out a collective "aww."
The little girl and the instructor share a few words then it's clear what is bothering the young gymnast: she wants to know where her father is in the auditorium.
The instructor asks, "Daddy, can you wave?" After the child spots her father in the crowd, she is all smiles while waving right back at her dad.
Now, The Show Can Begin
Then, after an encouraging round of applause and a little prodding and directing from the instructor on stage, the child continues her gymnastics tumbling routine. She even places her head on the group and proceeds to flip over, much to the crowd’s delight.
The last couple of minutes of the video consist of the little girl bouncing around, crawling through a tunnel on stage and twirling a red ribbon in the air. However, she does all of it with a massive smile on her face.
The little gymnast had the time of her life right after she found daddy, of course.
Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
