Have you ever taken the time to sit back and really think how fortunate you are as a parent to be able to share your child’s athletic experiences with them?
Do you appreciate how such moments can actually bring the family together? Do you know just how excited your kids get knowing that we are watching them play?
I know that, when you are going through the experience, it is sometimes hard to stop to realize just how fortunate you are to be given these years with your kids.
Someday you will look back at these years, and hopefully in a positive way. I know I have.
As sports parents, it is important to slow down long enough from the whirlwind of raising kids to realize just how lucky we are to be able to share with our children the gift of athletics.
