Hello again, what a beautiful day it has turned into. I'm glad it has too, as I am going to a high school football game to be a stat keeper for the team a friend of mine coaches. I'd hate to sit outside in crappy weather. I love football and all, but I just don't have it in me to sit through rain or cold(and especially both.)
So, as the title to this entry says my two year old son doesn't really talk. He can say a few words clearly and some that are mostly sounds that kind of sound like a word. His thank you is more like "naah naaah." The thing that bothers me, is that by now his sister(now 4 years old) was talking fully. I know each kid is different and all, but when the kid is mine, I tend to over think and kind of freak out more than I would if it were any one's else. Also, I know it's not really fair to compare him to his sister because he's the baby and the biggest problem is that we probably talk for him. My mom says she sees us do that all the time, and I guess if that's the case he must think "why do I need to talk it they will for me?" His doctor said there is nothing to worry about, and that we would keep an eye on it, but again, he's my kid and I think it's my job to worry about everything to do with him. I just don't want him to feel pressured as well, but I don't want him to be the only full grown 6th grader who can't form his words properly.
Although, it could just be that he doesn't speak English. I think he understands everything I say, but he doesn't listen to it, so maybe he really doesn't speak the same language as me. Maybe I'm the problem. Maybe I speak Mandarin Chinese or something.
So something really neat has happened. I actually have a couple of people following my blog! Yeah, two of them are my wife and mom, but there are actual people that I don't know following this blog!!! I feel so important, and that's not sarcasm.
I am really looking forward to the football weekend. Tomorrow Michigan takes on UMass and should win. Emphasis on should. I really like the way they look so far this year, but I question weather Robinson can keep up the amazing play he has shown so far. I mean the guy is putting up video game type numbers! Then on Sunday my Lions take on the Eagles, and I think they have a shot. I REALLY like the direction this team is headed in. I don't think they are ready for contention this year, but they are not far off. I just don't think they can overcome the loss of their quarterback long term, so they better hope Stafford gets back quick.
My predictions: UM 38 UMass 16. And Lions 23 Eagles 20.
One last thought: My daughter does something that I find to be one of the most amazing things in the world. Out of nowhere sometimes she will just say "Daddy, I love you." Now if that's not a reason to appreciate being a parent I don't know what is.
Until next time always remember: It's not how you start that matters, it's how you finish.
I hope all is well for you.
