We're only 5 days in, and my brain already feels like mush from so much TV. Madeline has claimed swimming as her favorite event and will even say, "I want to watch swimming now.
No gyn-as-tis (gymnastics)."
Watching the Olympics has made me think alot about what my kids will grow up to be one day. An athlete (doubtful given their genetics)? Bookworm (possibly)? Class clown (I could see that)? Spreadsheet driven nerd (ahem...)? It makes me wonder what my parents thought I'd grow up to be when I was little.
This little dude got a gold medal in "let me roll from my back to tummy then cry until my mommy flips me over and do the same thing over again, then smile because I'm so stinkin' cute."
His big sister will be getting a gold medal for "How many times a day can I ask for M&Ms even though I know I only get them for using the potty, which I've done once."
Now onto venting: How many of you have had Olympics results spoiled due to social media? I've been successful in avoiding results until today. A news website I check regularly hadn't posted results since the start of the games, but today they ruined the Women's Gymnastics results for me. I was not a happy camper.
We just finished watching the Women's gymnastics team get gold, and it was SO exciting even though I knew the results. Those girls deserve it! And that Michael Phelps guy? He's not too shabby either. :)
