Soccer What?

October 25, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well today at Josiah’s soccer game Stephanie and I both learned that we are very competitive.  Josiah has been playing soccer this year and has come a long way.  From the first game of crying on the sideline and not wanting to go in to the kid that typically scores 4 goals a game.

Well today, was way different.  Josiah set out the first quarter and then played the rest of the game . . . well he was on the field.  It’s almost as if he was in another world.  He was more interested in playing airplanes and superheroes than soccer.  I know there is a lot going on in our lives and the last thing is for Josiah to feel he messed up, but as a dad, I tried to get him to focus on the game without being one of THOSE parents.  You know what I mean, yelling at every thing they did or didn’t do.

It was hard to see him play the way he did today, but I think I learned more about myself than he did about soccer! So he had an off day . . . everyone has them!

    Sometimes you just gotta let a kid be a kid.
