Now here is a challenge that I like! And of course, I'm sharing the interest in hockey tonight as we watch the first game in the regional championships for high school hockey. Should be a nail biter, that is for sure. Last game against this team I believe the phrase "I'll f*&% kill you" was muttered to my son. I think that child is not playing tonight . . . and it's weird anyway since they are pals. Heat of the moment I'm sure.
I really liked the suggestions from this blogger about sharing interest. Especially about giving your kids TIME to explore them. That is definitely something that kids don't get enough of. I was just thinking about that yesterday. My kids really have no time - or at least, they don't use it wisely. They are always in such a hurry to accomplish something or a hurry to "relax" in front of the Xbox or TV. It is such a shame that we have to schedule time for fun . . . but we do.
I will be chatting with them this weekend and next week about finding time. I know they love to skate and snow board. Maybe in the spirit of the Olympics I will get them out side. Of course, my daughter scheduled two babysitting jobs and is backed up on homework and my oldest has a big history day project due Monday in the midst of all of his hockey games. My youngest gets to go play with a pal tonight though - grateful for that!
So, folks, Get Out There and Play a little, cheer a little, dance a little, read a little. . .
your children deserve it!
