Last Friday, the varsity team faced L&M at L&M.
I did not go.
I was told by the Wildcat that he wouldn't be playing. Unless someone was too tired and couldn't go in for special teams. There was a slim chance he would go in on special teams. But probably not.
So I planned a nice, quiet evening at home on Friday night.
Imagine my surprise and subsequent panic when I got out of the shower to be greeted with a voicemail that went something like this:
Do you know that your son is warming up to go in for varsity?
I do not know that.
Why would I have to know that?
My son does not play varsity.
And if he did, that would mean that he is backing up the back-up.
Clearly someone is misinformed.
Besides. If there was a chance that my Wildcat would be playing tonight, I would be there. Not trying to have a quiet evening at home.
Found out later that he was, in fact, warming up to go in for some plays at QB.
But he didn't get in.
oh thank heavens.
i just wasn't ready for it on friday.
But today is a new day.
And I am mentally prepared for the Wildcat to play some football on the JV team.
He is bigger and stronger and smarter this year.
And I have been on my knees in prayer for weeks now....praying for no injuries.
He can do this.
And I think I can do this too.
See you at the ballgame.
I'll be there with my camera.
Because whether I am ready or not....
....I love my Wildcat.
