braggin' on the kid

In case you haven’t heard, our son is a future Olympian. He’s proficient in all sorts of skills…shoe shuffling, title reversing, object noting, and tossing-of-the-closest-toy-at-hand.

For those of you unfamiliar with these events, here are some brief descriptions. Shoe shuffling consists of the rearranging of all footwear in mom and dad’s closet, with most shoes ending up piled between the shoe organizer and wall. Title reversing is the simple act of calling mom “Dada” and dad “Mama”. Rowan is especially adept at this skill. Object noting entails pointing at every object within sight and saying “Dis? Dis? Dis?” And that chubby pointer finger of his…I’m telling you…it’s a sight to behold. Tossing-of-the-closest-toy-at-hand is self-explanatory. It is also mom and dad’s least favorite of the events; those who participate in this sport are highly prone to injury.

Like I said…future Olympian.

O yay!!! I will be watching for him in the 2020 Olympics!

In the mean time, please be careful while he's practicing--we certainly want a healthy mom and dad in attendance to watch him impress the world with his tossing!

Just don't buy him a discus yet. You'd better wait until he's a little older and able to toss that thing outside. I don't want to come over and see discus-shaped holes in your walls and floors. :oP

That was so sweet to read. I can just hear a little one-year-old saying, "dis, dis, dis." Priceless moments that are still tucked in my memory of my babies that are now bigger.
