"Mom, I'm writing a play!"

So, it has come to my attention that the thought processes of men and women develop way earlier than I had ever anticipated. As I was cooking dinner last night McKay came into the kitchen and excitedly exclaimed. . .

"Mom! I'm writing a play!"

"That's great McKay! What's it about?"

"Well, I have 16 of them, but in this one the half-back. . . . . . ."

"What? Half-back? AAARRGGH Football plays!!!!!"

"What did you think I was writing?"

(Maniacal laughter from Jared in the background.)

So yes, I like football. How could I not with four older brothers. I even understand most of the rules, and used to play a little. Also, a bunch of my school friends and I, (who all had older brothers that played) wanted to play varsity football and after we creamed the opponent would then let down our beautiful long hair from our helmets. But, I must admit I don't get all the minutiae of every play and position.

McKay, however is very much filling in his Uncles' Sam and Seth's footsteps by playing Game Cube football with his dad. Techno Superbowl anyone???

  1. LOL! McKay is totally growing up! I'm really glad in some ways that I didn't have any boys...Jeremy and I know nothing about football!! The dream of letting the hair down out of a helmet was one of mine too, but I always imagined it from a motorcycle expert or something. You crack me up! :D
