Anxiety!!

I'm taking Lizzy to her first show this Friday, can't guarantee I'll show but I will at least take her to get used to the atmosphere of it all. Wish us luck:)

Yeah, I've showed, she hasn't. I'm not worried about her freaking at all just her paying attention to me... But it will all be okay!

You're working yourself up. You guys will do just fine. Take her for a walk around the ring once and after that it won't be a problem.

The more you work yourself up, the more you're going to transfer that anxiety to her. You guys will do just fine

I'm going to see if someone will take pictures for me and maybe even a video and then I'll show you all.
