Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that I don't do sports. I don't like to be dirty or sweat or really go outside that much. I started t-ball at 6 and then moved onto softball for a little while. But I also did gymnastics starting at age 5 and then moved to dance and gymnastics at 6, then I quit gymnastics and danced till I was 13 when I gave it up, something I deeply regretted as soon as I did it. And my mom wouldn't let me rejoin after we moved to a new town because I had quit. So out when any interest I had in physical activities.
My husband, on the other hand, loves sports. He played hockey, soccer, baseball from elementary to middle school and ran track in high school. He loves sports. He plays fantasy football every year which leads to him watching lots of games. We are such a stereotypical couple.
But I don't want my child to be one of those kids that never goes outside and doesn't do anything. So I have signed him up for soccer this fall and will sign him up for t-ball in the spring. I think this is a good start. And so far the soccer has gone well. The first practice or game or whatever went ok. Bub was nervous and unsure but the second session he did much better and wanted to keep playing beyond the hour session. This is a good sign for sure.
