Bad Mom

I have failed as a coach.

Kris and I are very competitive toward each other. When we are playing a game of anything we trash talk to each other. It is all done in fun.

While playing soccer with Zack the other day I jokingly said "you're going down." Yeah, it came back to haunt me yesterday while we were out back playing soccer again. He set the ball down and prepared himself to kick, he looked up at me and said "Mom, watch out cause you are going down!"

I know it is not good sportsmanship so I guess I need to watch what I say and teach him to be a good sport should he ever play on a team.

Bad Mom!

Note to self: Watch what you say to your son, no matter if you are clowning around or not.

I know how you feel.
The girls and I played a game where you have to flick frogs into a bucket, both the girls were beating me by a long shot, and I joked that I may as well give up.
Now my 3 year old says it anytime she is frustrated of upset.
I have to watch my toung too. =)
