This post IS about the rivalry between the Cubs and the Cardinals, BUT it's more than that because this blog is for parents, not sports fans. However, I am a sports fan too. So, the two topics are coming together tonight.
I am a Cardinals fan and my husband is a Cubs fan, a die hard Cubs fan. I am not sure why.
So, my son has been confused about which team to support. I, of course, want him to cheer for a team that has won the World Series since I have been alive (more than once). My husband wants him to root for the Cubs because he does.
I gave in this week.
The boys went to the Cubs caravan at Little Cubs Field in Freeport, Il. After hearing my 4-year-old sing "Go Cubs Go, Hey Chicago what do you say, the Cubs are gonna win today" in his cute little voice, I had no choice. Plus, dads and sons need to share a bond and often sports is that connection.
How do the kids in your family bond with their dad? Do you have a sports connection?
This site with Norman Rockwell paintings showing the bond between a father and son cracks me up. The bond is very important, but these pictures are too funny.
On a more serious note, here is a story about a father who pushed his son, who is in a wheelchair, in a triathlon. Unbelievable! It is a truly inspirational story.
