With very good reason.
This is Thomas' 3rd year of soccer....and the first 2 years were tough. I mean T.O.U.G.H.
This kid is competitive....and a perfectionist....and he was young...
and 5 yrs old respectively
Most Saturdays we left the field in a heap of tears...
and I don't mean "we" the boy....
I mean we the boy and his mama.
But this year he has really turned the corner. He's finally a team player!!
He is high fiving his teammates when they get a goal (rather than sobbing that he didn't get the goal).
He's passing the ball!
When we first started out, I had asked a friend with 2 boys (older) what she thought, and she advised "keep bringing him, keep signing him up....at some point he'll get it". I remember thinking " I don't know how much longer I can keep doing this, or keep subjecting other children to this". But alas, she was right! He's finally got it!!!
