I asked L yesterday(well two days ago now…sorry, meant to post this yesterday) what she would do if our (imaginary) son came home from football practice with a headache and wanted to quit after the first day of practice.
She said without hesitation, “I would tell him to go take a shower, feed him dinner, give him two aspirin, massage his shoulders, make him do his homework, tell him to suck it up , and send him to bed.”
……exactly what I was thinking! How did she come u win that all without even thinking about it!?
“The coach wants you to quit after the first day, that‘s why its hard. They want to weed out the weak ones.”
I am still amazed at her answer and at how quickly she answered. Its like she has a natural motherly instinct. Wow.
