As you already know from my ‘Football Widow’s Rant’, I am not a football fan. I could care less about it. My husband loves it. He loves all sports really, but football is his favorite. From the day our daughter was born, we both hoped that we would be able to share our interests with our daughter. For me, I hoped that she would enjoy art & doing crafts with mommy. She does & I couldn’t be happier. My husband has a longer list of interests. He dreams of running marathons with her as she gets older, playing golf and taking her to sporting events. He is off to a good start as she has already run her first fun run, loves golfing with daddy & at 2 years old is already a Pats fan.
At only 7 days old, Mai watched her first game with her father. Fast forward to today where she gets excited when she sees the Patriots emblem, cries if her Pats sweatshirt is dirty and screams “Good job, Tom Brady!!” at the game while stuffing popcorn down her gullet.
Who knows if her love for football & the Patriots will continue as she gets older, but for now daddy is enjoying his little New England fan. I thought we could make a keepsake for them to look back on some day.
Mai loves foot & hand crafts. She thinks it is fun to paint her feet up. I had to help to ensure that we had the colors in the right spots.
While the paint dried, Mai thought it was only fair that she got to paint mommy’s feet too.
When the paint dried, we painted on our Patriot’s game face, dated it & framed it for daddy. He loved it of course. GO PATS!
Ok, absolutely adorable and you know that Kevin loves football here, too. But here here it is the Giants and Notre Dame (College football). He has tried to get our girls interested, but still not much luck. Howver, they do love his other sports’ pastime of soccer. So, one out of two isn’t bad 😉
It is very funny actually how much she likes watching football with Daddy. I am sure it more so has to do with being with him then watching the game, but her Pat’s sweatshirt is her favorite. It is great when our girls can share these things with their fathers
