He is sick about missing his game.
Today is the very first day since July he has been home before 7 p.m. on a weekday.
When I picked him up, the team was doing warm ups.
I just kept quietly saying
"Well, no more missing assignments, no more missed games...it's that simple."
after every loud sigh he made.
I really think he thought I was going to cave.
No way on earth that was going to happen.
Not even if the coach called would I have changed my mind.
Academic BEFORE athletics is the only mantra I hold.
You can break a bone or pull a tendon and be out of commission, but no one can take your education away from you.
Just thought I'd give an update.
Motherhood is so dang difficult sometimes!
