Football season is here! Which means that I am a single mother for at least 4 hours, if not many more, a week! Why is it that when the Patriots are on, things that used to get done by my otherwise very helpful husband, suddenly don’t. As an example – first preseason game last night – came downstairs after putting Maya to bed and the dishes were still in the sink. Bummer! Where was the hubby? On the couch. Glued to the game…ahhh, it’s the season. At least it’s only a few hours a week. Imagine if he was glued to the Red Sox or Celtics for every game? I’d be in big trouble. Not that he doesn’t watch both, but the Patriots are priority.
My only saving grace is that Maya also happens to love football! Maybe it’s because it was always on when she was an infant, or maybe it’s all the cheering, but for some reason it keeps her attention longer than anything else on TV. Tonight was no different. She sat in her chair, staring at the TV…and then she started cheering, clapping, making little hand gestures, asking for more. It was hilarious! What can I say, she’s a true daddy’s girl. With the 2 of them so into the Patriots…maybe I should go get a mani/pedi! Hmm…when do they play again? 🙂
