Inara and I started Gymboree play classes when she was just 8 weeks old. On our first day, she couldn't stop staring at our instructor, Ms. Andrea! Despite all the cute little hand gestures and noises I made, she would not tear her eyes away from the teacher. After observing her intently for several minutes, I realized it wasn't Ms. Andrea she was staring at - but Gymbo! Once I figured that out, we always sat exactly opposite of our teacher so Inara would pay attention to me! Her second-favorite time in class now is Gymbo's goodbye song...her first is the parachute! Gymbo taught me to observe my child closely and really pay attention to what she loves and finds interesting; it's something that's served me well since then!
Class Type: Play & Learn
