A First for Me (and Jake)

We all know that football season has arrived, and if you know me, you know this makes me very happy. Not only do I enjoy College Football, but I also love High School football. Tonight was a HUGE game in our area called “The M&M Bowl;” it’s Munford High School vs. Millington High School and it happens every year.

Well, tonight, I decided that I was going to go to the game. Of course, that’s not really big news, but I also decided that I was going to take Jake with me. This was the first time that he has ever been to a football game; in fact, he kept asking me if we were going to watch the Bulldogs. Stephanie was very worried because Jake didn’t take a nap today but he did great.

Now, I didn’t expect him to sit there and watch the game all night, I’m not sure I could even do that. So we walked in, bought him a bottle of water, walked around, sat in the stands for a little while, walked to the other side, sat in the grass for a little while, watched the band at half time and headed home.

It was a GREAT night and this is just one reason I LOVE being a dad.

  1. I am really glad you boys enjoyed your night. yes, I was worried, but I am glad he went. I loved when he walked in the door and he said “MOM, I had SO MUCH FUN!”

  2. Oh, I wish I could have seen Jake there! I went, took my teenage daughter and her friends. I was told by such daughter that I could go, but could NOT sit near her! Enjoy the sweet days while they last!
