Kids sports for parents are complicated. I am still maneuvering the waters. A win is easy. It's the losses that make it more difficult. I mean, clearly, we know there's nothing to say at the end of a loss. The kids know they lost. It's like telling someone they're overweight. They know. So what's to say? I am still searching for the balance. Showing the love and compassion without being patronizing or trite. It is a delicate balance. Sometimes, silence seems to be the best thing. Any one who knows me, knows that's against my natural grain. I am sure many of you have swam these waters before me. Any thoughts? Feelings? Still a month to go this season.
Sidebars: How crappy it must feel to be Mitt Romney. Even when you win, the people don't want you. I have never seen such a lackluster feeling for a frontrunner. The "party" keeps looking under other rocks to see if anyone else could possibly run and beat Obama. Bill Maher returns tonight to satirize current events and politics. AND Sunday, Ricky Gervais hosts the Golden Globes. If you want to get all the jokes for the upcoming year, don't miss it. The insults both fly relentlessly and are funny. It's as if he is watching at home without censorship and we are listening. Take a moment to think about why Monday is a holiday. Happy weekend!
