They are such adorable parents!
You think the athletes are stressed at the Olympic games in Rio? They’ve got nothing on the athlete’s parents!
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been glued to your television set watching the Olympic games for the past few days. I love the Olympic games and love watching all the athletes from all the different countries compete, but I especially love when we get to see glimpses of proud family members in the audience.
As the mom of 4 kids who all play competitive sports, I can only imagine the anxiety and stress that must go hand in hand with being an Olympic parent. The intense swelling of pride these family members must feel when all the hard work and training their child has given pays off and they’re finally at the Olympic Games.
