More proof that my kid has his priorities right on…


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. 


About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.

  1. Forget about happiness is free! It all has to do with material goods we see that in the famous athletes who can’t keep themselves out of jail!!
