Proudest Dad

I’m working on a Spring Game post (yeah for being a week late to the party) but before we get to that, I need to take a moment to show off.

There are moments, as a parent, when your kid does something completely unprovoked that makes “it all worth it.” For some, it’s their kid’s first steps or the report card with straight A’s or maybe becoming a doctor. For me (and hopefully, to a certain extent, Mrs. Kaiser) one of those moments was the morning before the Spring Game. My oldest was painting pictures with her brother in the basement. She asked me how to spell “Buckeyes” and “Michigan” for a couple posters she was painting. Innocent enough.

The results, as they say, brought a tear to my eye.

Here’s my daughter and her brother holding up her “signs”:

(They read “Boo Mich” and “Go Bucks” respectively. Yes, my daughter was aware that we weren’t playing Michigan. She also knows that Michigan is the team you boo. My parenting is good like that. She’s also a little miffed she didn’t get to hold the “Go Bucks” sign)

    Love the halo over the boy’s head. What an angel 🙂

  2. I have to say I like this post a lot. I have 7 year old son who likes to say “oh no I am going to throw up” every time he sees someone wearing a UM shirt. The best was at the mall when he asked me to buy him a Michigan hat so he could tear it to pieces! Kids are great…especially when the are Buckeye fans!
