Only my kid...

Now, I must first say that all I want for my kids & for them to find what they're good at, and be happy with it. Simple, right??

I also must confess, that I dream of my son being a football star at The University of Michigan, and my daughter cheering being a UM cheerleader as a freshman, cheering him on, and me & hubs sitting in our reserved seats, and people parting the isles for us to walk through bc we are who raised the #1 NFL draft pick and the best cheerleader UM had ever seen...And really, I can deal with my dream of football greatness not coming true. But I assume then it would be baseball greatness, seeing as my son is a lefty and has a heck of an arm, that being a left-handed pitcher would be a natural choice. I could learn to like baseball. Maybe. Oh yeah and they need to be doing these things while working on their dental or medical degrees. I'm open to any form of doctor, really. I'm easy to please. Obviously.

So what has my darling son taken to the past few days??? Cup stacking. Like, speed cup stacking. Except minus the speed part. He practices using baby bottle lids. Sooooo I guess I know what to get him for his birthday...

  6. Aww I heart your cup-stacking-future-football-star baby. I am sure this is how Peyton Manning started out.

  7. we have very similar dreams except it is for my son to play for the cavs and my daughter to be a DCC - the cavs girls aren't good enough for her.

  8. At least he will be popular in college playing flip cup. Also, baseball is the way to go, the average baseball career is much longer than the average NFL career, and typically with less brain damage.

  9. I just came over from BBC...I love the stacking story...When our youngest son was 3, we bought a TON of the plastic Christmas cups from the dollar store and he went to town...funny the things they love!
