It feels sooo wonderful to know that this sweet boy, who two years ago was absolutely traumatized by going out on a soccer field without me, is so confident and comfortable doing so today. And my feelings are validated. I was so ambivalent about soccer that last time. I almost felt like I should maybe have pushed him more. But he wasn't ready. Why push? It seems so silly now. It should be FUN right? And now it is, it really is.
