or more likely proof that I have lots and lots of work to do as a parent.
Today, at dinner, we were having a family discussion about sports and the Olympics and what Olympic success would bring.
There were the usual answers: a sense of accomplishment. a sense of pride. the thrill of being the “best in the world”. endorsement deals. book contracts.
But the best was: “a lot of women would be attracted to you if you were famous” (take a guess which kid said that!)
It took a while to clean up all the milk that spewed from my nose.
Just so none of you get too worried, we did finish the discussion, and talked about what is really important. you know, sports cars, big bank accounts, private jets.
