What a difference a week makes
This is a picture from Gabe's soccer game LAST week (he's second from right).
I have no such pictures from this week.
The weather was bad. Monsoon season bad. As we headed for the car before the game, Gabe yelled, "Are we gonna play in this stuff?!" I yelled back, "As long as there's no lightening...you play. Even if there's a flood...you play. In fact, playing in a flood is FUN!"
His response? Well, if he was allowed to use The Bird, he would have flipped it.
In any case, bad weather = few kids showed = not much fun = run around like he's the Missing Link.
Last week? One goal. Two assists.
This week? One mad mom. And "What the hell are you doing out there?" yelled twice in frustration.
Oh, well. At least I got a good column out of it for next week. By the way, is it inappropriate to make my 5-year-old run laps?
