Unexpected title huh? No, I didn’t try out for a football team, but I have to admit, after practicing with Palmer for his tryout this past week, I may have missed my calling in life. I’ve got a mean spiral. I have to admit, I am not the sportiest of girls. Josh is always a good sport to take me to Jazz games and I sit and tell him whose clothes are cute, or who has cute kids…ya know, I don’t really focus on the game.
I married a die hard sports fan who played every sport when he was growing up and then to top it off we had 4 boys. I have figured that it is high time I embrace sports and I have actually tried to figure out all of these crazy games.
I have definitely gotten better and I have to tell you I know Josh totally loves me like crazy if I can remember who plays for what team, so I have tried to figure it all out. Our boys play a million sports. They are in competition soccer, we are also in tennis right now and swimming. They also play baseball, flag football and basketball during those seasons. We have not yet experience tackle football however. In our area you can play at 7 years old . Thanks to flag football I was able to push it back for as long as possible.
Well, the day has come. He has decided that he would rather do football than anything else. Josh is thrilled, and I am freaking out.
I mean pads? He is too little for this. And we are okay with him going out onto a field and getting smashed to the ground? What? Who invented this game?
Today Palmer had tryouts. I was totally going to stay home so I didn’t freak out, and then I couldn’t just stay home so I watched. I had to keep reminding myself to breath. Luckily one of Palmer’s friends who’s mom happens to be my friend was also there and it was much easier watching it with her. But I was still dying. We made it though day two and he has to go back tomorrow. I guess we’ll see.
And in the mean time this is a very good time for me to learn to calm down and not freak out any time my kids do something new…working on it.
