This past weekend, it rained. We were at an outdoor swim meet with the boys. It was a Very Very Very Wet team bonding experience. So today, I want to share with you something that a teammate of my sons said.
“I'm already wet. The rain doesn't make a difference.” - Justin Wong, 7 (it made the paper)
And something I told my younger son, The Bear, who had a decidedly different attitude:
"You are where you are and that's not going to change. Make the best of being here and turn the negative into a positive." - Mean Mommy
I'm happy to report that, by the last race, The Bear rallied and swam well. #1 Son had a Very Good Meet, with a minor exception. Mom and Dad had a very soggy parental bonding experience, a lot of laughs, and participated in a great memory. And after all,
"The sun will come out tomorrow." - Little Orphan Annie
And it did. :)
