Neither my husband nor I are athletic types. I had asthma as a child and my parents were always very hesitant to let me play any sports. My husband just didn’t have any interest in them. So when our boys came along, we weren’t really expecting them to be very athletic or interested in sports. That’s an awful thing to say, I know. We are bookworms, computer junkies and gadget addicts. Naturally we thought they would be like us, lol.
They are. Really. They each had a computer before they could hold a crayon. Workbooks get a big “ick” response from all of us. New and shiny gadgets are on every gift wish list.
But surprisingly, both of the boys are good athletes. They are excellent soccer players and they take most sporting activities very seriously. In the case of my oldest, sometimes too seriously (you don’t want to play dodge ball with him, lol!).
Weird how your kids can be so much like you, yet so different at the same time, isn’t it?
