I’ve entered a new realm of parenthood. The realm in which your child has activities that you have to take them to multiple times a week.

My oldest son started flag football on Sunday. He has practices twice a week and games on Sundays. This is a whole new world for me. We did micro soccer, but that only consisted of Saturday mornings and sometimes a Wednesday evening if there was a rain cancellation.

I’m excited to get to watch some football though. It will be fun to see them figure out how to play the game and have a good time. And I’m certain watching 6 year olds play flag football is the same thing as watching a college football season.

On to the flakes
