Are you ready for some Football????? (What I Learned this Week...)
Football season is officially in full swing. Have you noticed? I think for the first time ever, I'm beginning to realize why so many moms struggle through these months with gritted teeth...
We don't want our hubby's yelling and turning up the TV with each and every replay and foul called to wake up our sleeping children on what has the potential to be a quiet afternoon filled with napping.
For some reason, whenever sports are on, I always think I hear a baby crying, a child calling my name, or someone yelling out for something. I guess it's just noises in the crowd, but it drives me crazy. (And probably drives Derek crazy, too, since I'm always saying, "Will you mute it for a second?" :) )
Husband watching football on the couch=Husband eating on the couch=Kids wanting to eat on the couch (not an easy battle)
There's something about watching grown men play football that makes our grown husbands want to wrestle more, be more manly, and yell louder and more often :) Need I explain the issues with that one?
I don't know about your husbands, but for Derek, Football Season=FANTASY Football Season, meaning he is in
Okay, I could keep going, but I think we all get the point. It's not the 24-7 football that gets to us, it's the effects of the season on the rest of life. I am half joking, but also half serious when I list all of these things, but I WILL say that I'm glad my hubby gets to have a hobby once a year...even if it does last a looooooooooong time ;) Derek doesn't get to do much for himself, let alone zone out and relax on the couch. Go ahead, Babe, turn up the TV, lounge on the couch, and enjoy your chips and dip. Just know that whenever you have the urge to tackle someone, you have 3 little boys waiting to be taken down :)
