Yesterday, after school, Lore came running into the house, just bawling! He said he got stung by a bee in his nose, and it was still in there.
He was right. He had been riding his bike and a bee flew up his nose and stung him, and got stuck in there. We got the bee out, put some ice on it, luckily he doesn't react severely to bees. Then he shows me he broke his bike helmet (luckily not his head.) Then about 15 minutes later he tripped and banged his head on a glass case. All of this happened to my normally extremely coordinated child within 20 minutes. He was pretty defeated, he was supposed to go to his soccer game in about 30 more minutes, but he wasn't too sure of it, and honestly neither was I. But, I felt it was my motherly duty to try to pep him up. I looked at him and asked if his nose hurt, he said not really. I then said, that it's a good thing he got all of the bumps and stuff out of the way, now he would have the BEST GAME EVER! He seemed to like that idea and got excited again about soccer.
Now, we have had a rough soccer season, Liam's team has won 1 or 2 games, Liam scored a goal, we were pretty pleased even though they lost most of their games. Lore's team on the other hand only has 2 kids on it who have ever played soccer before, compared to the other teams who have 50% or more of their kids returning kids. Not only have they lost every game, they had never score.... not once. Now I know it's not about the winning, but no one likes to get their butts kicked EVERY game.
Yesterday, after having a quite troubling afternoon, my baby.... SCORED THE ONLY GOAL HIS TEAM HAS HAD ALL YEAR! He was thrilled, so was his team, and so were we. It was the first goal of the game... they did come back and beat us 5-1, but that one point sure meant a lot to us!
Here he is trying to play it so cool, but notice the blue and white band on his hand. That means he scored and can't until someone else does.
It was a very happy house last night!
