Update on Will

It hurts.
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'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!


  1. Way to stay strong. That had to of been harder on you than on him.

  2. Oh man, that is hard. but yes, academics need to come before athletics! hard lesson.
