Allows, even drives their child to, pays for AND sits and watches while they get this kind of abuse?
Yes, folks, it’s football season again. I’m taking a break from the summer recap to jump into the season. It’s been 5 years since we’ve had a kid in his first year of football and I have to say, I’d forgotten about the bruising they take. It occurred to me that I haven’t seen this on Justin or Tyler for a few years, although I do remember some doozies. I asked them why they thought that was and interestingly, they had the same response:
“Mom, now we GIVE the bruises!”
(insert implied “DUH!” here)
Bryce has actually been quite pleased with his bruises and wears sleeveless shirts at every opportunity. I thought the orthodontist might report me to Child Protective Services after a recent visit, but no call yet. Oh wait, is that the doorbell?
