Life With Wee People: The thing about Mike, Stephen and Noah...
When your men are into sports you become a soccer, football and basketball mom (silly grin). That also means your role in The Man Cave revolves around gym equipment and eye/hand coordination activities.
Last week the Special Olympics kept me off-line because Mr Autism had to practice his skill drills which translated into a massive amount of playtime and kiddie virtual instruction for Noah. Mr. Autism won a blue ribbon for first place in his cty b-ball skill set division heat so we all happen to be very proud of him.
Stephen was and is his wing man which required I do a massive amount of jogging because when the wee people say, "Lets take a walk," what they really mean is they ride their bikes while I run along side (heh heh). There's a reason why my kids are skinny: A game of catch can go on for hours and they live for the beach and yard time (LOL). We also habitually shoot balls into stacked tires in the garage (among other things like hitting tennis balls against the wall when not scooting, skateboarding, biking, jogging or inline skating somewhere). ;-)
During the skill set section of the Special Olympics Stephen, the Minion Blur was invited down onto the gym floor by Noah's coach. The boys stretched and did their wee people thing. They have an amazing brotherly connection that's mad fun to watch. Keeping my five year old in the stands was soooo not happening during the the third quarter of this event because Noah's friends are his friends and he wanted to stick with the boys and his brother. It was either give him a productive coaching task to do or cart him out of there (LOL).
I love watching them get their game face on. Lots of high-fives, head butting and mashy-the-nose going on. It's a wee people guy thing. They had my undivided attention last week. This week I've gotta play social media catch up. Will let you know what I've been up to next...
Yup. There's been some mischief afoot (I've been training, shopping for commercial space and filming music videos - LOL). ;-)
