You like WHAT???

Football Mama.

That is what Erin likes. Okay, so that's not so bad by any means; however, she lives in a house that has never seen a sports channel turned on. Erin came home from school one day & decided that she likes football. I even bought her a small football to toss around.

Does this mean that I have to actually watch the game!? I don't understand it one bit. And I don't really get why people watch it either. OTOH, at least it isn't golf.

Oh! And she is obsessed by the news also. Now that makes sense. David is a news hound. Many mornings when Erin is finished with her daily chores, she can watch some tv before leaving for camp. Some days it's the Disney channel. Some days it's the news.

Rather than be upset about the bad things she sees, she asks questions.

  • What does this word mean?

  • Why are those people doing that?

  • How are they going to fix that traffic mess? (I don't know but hope "they" figure it out before I go out on the road.)

I find this all very strange. At 6 I liked playing at the park, riding my bicycle & playing with my Barbie doll.

Well she is certainly athletic, isn't she?? Nothing wrong with wanting to try it out. I was happy when the girls wanted to play softball - that game is pretty simple - like you - I know nothing about football. Look at it like this - Erin can teach you!!

Now there is a pink football!

I remember when you caught news on at 6:00 and 10:00. If you missed it, you missed it or read the daily newspaper. Everything newsworthy is now so immediate. Different world than our childhood days.

Just remember to tell her to root for the 'Noles. ;o)

I think kids these days are much smarter than we ever were. They ask so many questions, and good one too.
