When we woke up on competition day, my husband and I were nervous. Very, nervous! As a mom, it's hard to be the voice of reason when all you want is for your child to achieve his dream, but I had to stay positive for him and my other children.
Walking up through Olympic Park with everyone heading to the Opening Ceremony was surreal. While the entire event was wonderful, as a mom, it is indescribable to see your child walk out of the tunnel and represent his country.
