Tonight was soccer night for my youngest.

He loves going, and each week, he counts down the days till he can sport his cool jersey and oversized shorts. And it was the first time the coach taught the kids to bounce the ball on the top of their heads. Most of the boys and girls giggled and found it funny.

Not mine.

When one of the coaches noticed my son doing more observing than bouncing, he came up to Hayden and showed him how it’s done by softly dropping the ball on his noggin. I don’t think the coach got the reaction he was hoping for.

Hayden said, “Hey, you just messed up my hair!”
