Props to You: Alexandra Raisman’s Parents


These are the parents of Alexandra Raisman, a gymnast on the American Olympic team, and it’s clear that they completely support their daughter 100%. The video is of them watching their daughter’s uneven bar routine the other night during the Olympics. Greg and I thought this was so adorable when we saw it. What a good example of supporting your child–Greg and I, both, want to be like that with whatever Zoey does in the future:

About cdhoose

I'm a mom to an amazing little girl and have another little one on the way. I live in Upstate New York with my fiance and daughter, 2 big, crazy dogs and a 3-legged cat (who has an attitude). I hate know-it-alls, Lindsay Lohan and socks with holes in them. I always seem to get myself into trouble (which entertains my fiance to no end), but I try hard to be a good parent. Also, I occasionally work on scrapbooking the fifty billion pictures I've taken of my kid. And I like ice cream. The end.

  1. I loved watching this. I also love how since they caught the tension of being an Olympian’s parent on video, they’ve focused on them in further competition. I think that’s half of my love of the Olympics: Watching the parents react.
