Look at My Kid

No, really. Look at her. Both of my kids are hypermobile. Some people call it double jointed. It’s a good thing to have for sports, Jane can pull her arm back a little further than most kids so she gets more momentum when she’s hitting the ball. Alexander can do wacky stuff with his elbows when he’s throwing a baseball and then there are the parlor tricks when they both just start wrapping their bodies into odd shapes solely to creep me out. Lucky me.

Yesterday I pulled out the camera for Jane’s volleyball match and was able to snap a shot of her hypermobile arm in action. This is why I make her do plank every day. Those are some unstable joints.
