Finally a goal

Andrew scored his first goal in soccer a few weeks ago! I was such a proud mama!

Sports are proving to be very challenging for me as a parent. I want so badly for him to do well, but don't want to put too much pressure on him. I was never "pushed" to excel at any one particular sport, and I wish so badly that I had been. However, what about when your child just isn't getting it? Zack feels like Andrew should be a little more advanced at this stage, but really, who is to say when it's supposed to "click"? I'm not a huge advocate of jumping from activity to activity just because it seems to be challenging. I feel that's part of the growing up process: push through the hard parts, and make it to the other side. Hopefully, I'm doing that successfully with Andrew. It's such a fine line that I am treading lightly towards. I want for him to be the best, but really, I just want him to DO his best. When do I back off, and when do I push? Anyone have any wisdom on the matter?

A little too much fun

Since my nights have turned to one big nursing fest, I've gotten quite creative with my time. One day, these kids are gonna kill me, but for now, I'm getting a few laughs at their expense! :)

What did nursing mothers do before smart phones??
