I did not let Angie and Ethan join in with Joseph's pre-game stretching...if I did they'd probably be the only two without a uniform on
I did not look at this picture and think that one day Joseph will be playing professional ball and all these other kids will think "wow, we knew him we he played t-ball". Not me...because I know it's all "just a game"--for fun!! (Joseph: Front row, 2nd from the left)
I did not take Angie and Joseph to the UCF game and "give in" to all their requests for "spirit stuff" (can you believe a foam hand was $8)
And at that same football game, I did not let them eat all kinds of junk food...and then they both did not have a tummy ache on our way home
At the air show yesterday, I did not make the kids get up from the plane display just so I could get in and see all the cool gadgets
I did not let the kids get ballon animals from air-men in super high stilts that even weirded me out a bit
On the ballon animal subject, I did not laugh at Joseph when this happened:
Me: wow, you got a cool monkey balloon
J: It's a boy monkey
Me: Oh yea, how do you know that?
J: (looking at the extra bit of balloon hanging down by the "tail") Because he has a private part, mommy
I did not make the kids take this picture over and over again trying to get a good, everybody smiling shot... if i did do that, can you tell that it didn't work
I did not let Angie eat almost a whole thing of cotton candy and then get it from ear to ear on her face
I did not take this picture of Joe and I and then realize that you could see my arm/hand/camera in the reflection of our sunglasses
I did not look at the "pond swoopers" and think how much fun that is and how I'd love to try it
Oh and one more: I do not wear the same Indianapolis Colts jersey every Sunday so that I can show my support!!
