Well, here goes - My middle son, Ciaran (12 y.o.) plays Australian Rules Football and his team won their Grand Final on Sunday. It was such an achievement to make it into the grand final and then just the icing on the cake to actually win it, which they did convincingly. The whole team played brilliantly and as a team and I think that this is what I am most proud of. There were certainly no 'I''s in this team and that is why they won. They all played a part in their team's magnificent win.
There has been so much negativity lately in the media, about the 'ugly' parent that is said to be found at children's sports and games. On Sunday at this game, it was lovely to see that there was none of that attitude present, and that it was such a positive experience for every body present, especially all of us very proud mamas.
Okay, so now I have said it and confessed to all and I am still a very proud mum! Well done boys!
