This whole thought process started on SuperBowl Sunday. For all you Steelers haters, you have to admit that CC is still darn cute in her jersey!
Ben, CC and I left a Superbowl party at halftime, so when we got home, and after I put CC down, we watched a bit of the game. Ben was actually sitting on the chair watching it, like he was really getting it. I am pretty good at explaining the game to a three-year-old. Ok Ben, see that big thing that is shaped like a U, well, the kicker guy needs to kick the football through that to get 3 points. But, I really can't do much more than that.
When I talked to Steve on Monday...he had a trans-con that got in super late Sunday night - did you know that some trans-con flights can be 6 hours...I tell you what, if I am in a plane for 6 hours I want to be in Europe! ... I expressed my worry in teaching our son football. He reminded me that college football is on Saturday so he would be able to teach Ben about the game. Good! Good! I would learn the game if I needed to in order to teach Ben, but this is something a father should teach his son. And thank goodness that Steve is usually home on Saturday so that he can teach Ben. And if Ben grows up to play football, and is a tight end, and girls joke about his 'tight end' ...I will not think it is so funny!
