J finally got the courage to tell his dad that he really didn’t want to play baseball this spring. This was a HUGE deal to the little guy! He lives for Dad’s opinion (a little obsessive at time, but I’m told that’s normal) so when Dad finally asked him flat-out “Do you want to play this year?” J shook his head and said, “No daddy, I don’t.” May not seem like much, but it was a huge deal to a 7-year-old. I’m so proud of his courage!
So anyway, I decided to look for something else for him to do in the spring. Soccer was a no-go, so what was left? I found some martial arts facilities – check out the examiner.com article! – but he was worried about hurting his hand when he tried to break a board. Gotta love the mind and worries of a second grader:)
