I recently signed Stella up for a class at The Little Gym. Her class is called the Birds and they're aged 10-19 months. I thought it would be good for her to be around other little kids and get used to being in a setting with some structure led by another adult. It's a parent/child class, so I'm in there with her and she seems to really like it. They do some singing and they learn some things like somersaults. Then they get to explore the gym. There are various things set up for them to crawl around on, hang on, climb on, etc. Then they get some time to play with balls and they do bubbles. With kids of that age group, it's mostly organized chaos, but it's pretty fun to watch and the kids are super cute.
We've noticed, however, that Stella's gym time has had some interesting repercussions. Things have gotten pretty exciting around here and scenes like this at the gym...
... are translating into scenes like this at home:
(and, no, that's not a door Stella is standing in front of. That's a window).
