We aren’t a family of sports fans, but we are trying to expose our boys to different sports. You know, so they at least understand the rules…So once in a while we watch some sort of game & I fumble through explaining what’s going on, then my husband takes over & explains it the right way.
So tonight we have tried to make the Super Bowl cool by serving treats & dimming the lights.
I’m not sure they like football.
My 9 year-old is mostly interested in the food & the commercials. He said “It’s just a bunch of guys knocking each other down for no good reason. Plus I can’t even see the ball!”
My 6 year-old said, “Mom, why do they call it the Super Bowl when they aren’t even bowling?”. He doesn’t want to miss anything though & keeps asking to pause it so he can get more snacks…he is very interested in the flags & the on-screen scoreboard.
I am spending the time doling out snacks & hand stitching the binding on T’s quilt. My husband is doing something over on the computer.
Yeah, not great sport lovers at my house.
On a different note…this morning I read through my journal from my Caring Bridge site from when I had my heart surgery. It brought tears to my eyes. There was a lot of joy & heartache in those posts. I am so thankful for all the love & support we received during that time. Most of all, I am so incredibly proud of the way my husband stepped up & took care of me. (Thanks hun, I love you so much!)

T lost his 2 bottom teeth this week!
