Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Show and Tell

Boogie has his first Show and Tell at school today. When I told him he needed to pick out a toy to take to school, he was really excited. When I further explained that he would get to show it to his class and tell them about it, his enthusiasm faded. My poor child only wants to be the center of attention at home. He is not interested in having attention directed his way at school or anywhere else.

Boog is very competitive and always has been. He always wants to race the neighbors, either on bike or foot. We thought signing him up for a soccer league would be a good idea when he turned 3. It wasn't. Hubby and I signed on to co-coach the team. Practices were fun, the kids were so cute and loved to run and kick the ball. At the first game of the season, right after the initial kick-off, Boog kicked the ball down the field and into the goal, in like the first 10 seconds of the game. I was so proud and just knew we had a super star on our hands...but then it happened. The crowd went wild with cheers and Boog stopped like a deer in headlights. All that noise, all that attention, he came over to me and sat, and refused to play... the rest of the season.

So he took his bakugan to school for show and tell. I asked what he was going to tell the class about it and he told me he would let me know when he gets home. I guess he just wants to be excited about taking the toy and not think about the "tell" part. I can't wait to hear how it goes.

  1. Ahh, 3 year old soccer. Connor refused to play because he kept coming over to me for snacks.
