"And my mom said she would coach the team. Isn't that cool!"
Wow, if that doesn't warm a mom's heart. I love how close we are to our kids. I love that they get really enthusiastic to do things with us. I love how my 10 year old son is not shy about expressing that enthusiasm about doing something with his mom to his friend. And when his friend said "Yeah! Then I might be interested in joining!" Well, that's icing on the cake friends.
