Soccer With My Son

Monday, October 19, 2009

Today was the last game of the season. Today was the game in which the kids play against the parents. My first attempt to kick the ball was rather lame, but my son, when given a chance, said "Good try, Mom!" After that I got a little better and later he came by me on the field and said I was doing better than usual. Ah... words of praise from my 10 year old son!

I have only played one other game of soccer against him, and that was summer before last on the last day of Soccer Camp. This year there was no game because the whole week they were at camp it rained. They played in the mud, but they decided that the parents would not want to.

I had a lot of fun, and I enjoyed the game, but the sweetest thing in the world was the praise of my son!

Oh, and by the way, they won!

    I think your son is awesome. He saw how well you tried and that was awesome. When things get down think of his words and keep going. He is a great source of positive for you.

    In one of my blogs someone said we need to sleep, eat, breath positive. You can do this. I am here to cheer you on. Take it slow and one day at a time and each time you do things will get easier like the soccer game.

    It sounds like you had a wonderful day with your son, believe me all too soon they will be grown. I know from being your Spark friend and all the positive reinforcement that you have given me that your son learned his giving nature from his Mother. You have done a marvelous job. Spark on! emoticon

    That is so sweet ,
    Praise is a wonderful thing to build up confidence! I am sure he has heard these words many times from you !
    How blessed you are to have a son who cares.....and who is sensitive enough to know when MOM could use some encouragement...
    My kids are my biggest cheer leaders......but they also demand I "bring home the trophy mom..."...hahaha! that is when I have to explain to them that it is not ALL BOUT WINNING....hehehehe n, but they are cute!

    Have a wonderful week and store these moments in your heart...they grow sooooo fast!
