A video posted to Imgur shows the fierce competitor seriously giving it her all as she faces off against an older girl. Meanwhile, her opponent is hysterically laughing at the child's clenched teeth, fierce eyes, and overall show of strength.
After a few minutes, the older girl takes the younger one down. Some may disagree with me, but I think she should have let her win. Even if for no other reason than to show her appreciation for how seriously she took the contest.
Either way, we want to say thanks to this awesome little competitor, who gave us a good laugh today. Don't worry; you'll get bigger, and be able to win more handily (get it?). In the meantime, might I suggest that you put in some major practice hours?
Just don't change your game face! It may not have done the trick this time, but I'm guessing it may intimidate future opponents enough to beat them, whether you are stronger than them or not!
Does your child take certain things like arm-wrestling matches, hula-hooping, or the like super-seriously sometimes?
