HMP: Cousins' Conversation


During this episode of "Parallel Play Breakthrough"  Peanut engages his cousin, K, in a conversation about Spencer and Thomas the Tank Engine.  I love this picture because, although only six months apart, Peanut and K are rarely on the same page UNLESS it is about the "cheeky one."

What About Bob?: I Can See It...It's That Time of Year Again

AUGUST

focus

motivation

excitement

meetings

strategies

excitement

Bob enjoys many different hobbies:  all things Civil War, coins, stamps, patches, old time radio shows, antiques (especially radios), history, baseball and...(Insert guess here, please.)  Even though he loathes August as it induces a multitude of discomforts via allergies, Bob LOVES soccer.  Bob grew up in a soccer household.  They watched.  They played.  They coached.  They analyzed.  They enjoyed.  They established.  They lived and breathed soccer.  Nevertheless, my husband and I conversed, to some length, about our apprehension to dive back into the coaching world.

"I'm done coaching."

I remember those famous last words.  DONE.  My all telling raised eyebrows and enormous smile were enough to create the aura of disbelief.  It didn't matter.

We had a similar conversation after Walnut was born, too.  DONE.  'There is no way in hell that he won't coach this little guy's soccer team someday.  Who is he fooling?'


Bob and I traveled sans kiddos last week.  We enjoyed eating in a restaurant without looking at the children's menu.  We didn't have to take "potty" breaks.  We even slept in until 8:00 a.m.  But, when the draft for soccer was scheduled, we HAD to be home.  After all, it is the SOCCER draft.  Therefore, we trekked back to the western part of Pennsylvania without a thought.


And, here we are...

AUGUST 2011

soccer season. (period)

Ask me where he is tonight.  Do it.

He's meeting with his fellow coach to discuss the upcoming season, strategies, drills, etc.

Have I mentioned that Walnut is six years old?  *grin*


Disclaimer:  Under NO circumstances is the author of this post upset with her husband.  If anything, I find his behavior amusing and consider him the best dad in the world.
