A gold medal performance

I'm an Olympic junkie.

I love cheering for my country and I am thrilled when the athletes representing it do well.

I am very patriotic and I truly believe that I live in the best country in the world.

I do.

I also have huge amounts of appreciation for the skill, dedication and perseverance of everyone who is at the Olympics competing.

We are only two days into the competitions but I have already explained to my children how winning a bronze medal is a great accomplishment. 

I have explained to my kids how you don't lose gold when you win silver.

I've explained how just making it onto an Olympic team is a lot of work and is a privilege that few people achieve. 

I think all my talking is falling on deaf ears however.

Oh well, I will keep talking because I think telling them this stuff is important.

And you know what? If lecturing my kids was an Olympic event?

I'd win the gold every time. 

Just sayin'.

  1. Lecturing kids is also unfortunately a marathon not a sprint! 🙂
    We are junkies at our house too. I love see sports that I don’t normally see on TV. Curling is on of my favorites 😛

  2. My kids would definitely say that I could beat you at lecturing. It sounds like you are giving them great messages and they are sinking in even if it doesn’t seem like it.
