We are huge Shawn Johnson fans in our house, she is such a great athletic role model for kids, absolutely adorable and so talented, an Olympic medal winner! Kids and me have been rooting and voting for her during this season’s Dancing With The Stars, and she is one of the three finalists still on (keep voting!). I had a change to meet Shawn Johnson last week while she attended to the Bed Jump in Bryant Park, NYC, part of GetAFreeNight.com promotion.
I asked Shawn how she lives life to the fullest and what kind of tips she would give for kids who want to achieve their dreams. Shawn told me she started gymnastics when she was 3 years old, and she has loved it ever since, and wants to encourage others to do what they love and are passionate about. Her tip is to pick one thing that you are passionate about and stick with it, and I think it’s a good one, not just for our kids, but us moms too. Speaking of moms, I love that Shawn’s mother travels with her all the time, she is a common sight at the DWTS audience as well. You can only imagine how much this mom has worked to make her daughter’s dreams come true and I have a huge respect for her.

Did you get to jump on the bed? I would have sooooooo wanted to. LOL awesome!!!
So lovely that you got to meet and chat with her K! I’m both a gymnastics and DWTS fan and I really admired her positive attitude at the Olympic games (when she just missed the overall gold behind Nastia Liukin). She’s a fantastic role model for kids! -Christine
