This is one of those things, do I share or keep it to myself? I figured I would put it out there and just let it be known! Has the Lord ever humbled you after you had the thought process run thru your brain, “my kid would NEVER _______!”
Brayden had football practice and so due to being their ages the parents sit and watch the two hour practice. We sit around the boys as they practice and let the kiddoes play together as we wait.
It was getting to the very end of practice, all the kids were playing when Jordan decides he’s mad and goes and kicks his brother. I get up, grab him by the arm and quietly but firmly tell him he had better SHAPE IT UP! I am gathering stuff to go, he does it again, I come near him and (I said I would NEVER have one do this, NEVER, and I haven’t!) he runs from me right into the football practice, right into the middle of the boys. Corvan, trying to be a hero throws down all the things he had in his hands to help me get back to the car and runs for him and TACKLES him. He thought it was a victory until Jordan was MAD and comes up from the tackle a SWINGIN’!!! They were punching each others lights out. Corvan of course having to defend himself and Jordan was making his point, fists and all! What was I doing? DYING! DYING!!! This was the biggest action all the parents had gotten since we started the season and they were INTO IT!
Needless to say, when I got Jordan within my reach again….let’s just say, practice was over, thank God for tented windows, and a 20 mile ride home so that I may cool off before being able to touch him again! Corvan? He apologized, but I know he thought he was just really doing me a favor by ‘getting him for me.’
I texted my sister soon after and told her, “just kill me now!” She wrote back, if you don’t blog this I will!!!
I think I have been humbled, the next practice I am happy to say, he was a pleasant four year old and I will not judge any other children and their behavior from here on out! I need to take care of my own and that is IT!
