Gold Aspirations

How about the Olympics games? Personally, I couldn't give a rat's patootie but I watch because I can't take my eyes off of the young athletes perfect bodies! What are they drinking - Hulk Gamma Ray water? Samu is completely disinterested, then again, he still sleeps in diapers because he's too lazy to get up and pee early in the morning.

But Zuki - is into the swimming events. It's funny because when Zuki was three years old, I took this video of him trying out his new swim cap and goggles in the bathtub.



My husband brought it up after watching Lochte win the Gold in the 400 meter. It must've been the pride and the inspiration of our country winning the race - coupled with a few beers - that sparked the memory. And suddenly, he had high hopes. Maybe Zuki will swim his way into the Olympics one day...

Although our boy loves the water, I'm not so sure he's into any kind of training. I mean, there isn't a day that goes by where at least one article of clothing isn't on backwards, inside-out or on the wrong foot. As a matter of fact, I think he's gone the whole summer thus far without wearing underpants!

Still, I guess it's endearing that my husband has noble aspirations for his son. This from a man who can't stay awake past 9 pm. Does he have any idea that serious athletes start training at 5 am on a school day? Now that I think about it, we could start now with waking Samu's scrawny butt to get him to pee in the toilet.

  1. I totally love the Olympics. I think Zuki could make it - are their peeing in the potty events?

    There should be.

    I'd lose in that one for sure.

    1. Peeing in the potty sounds hilarious! And challenging, too if the toilet were tiny enough for Barbie. What a use for Kegel exercises, huh?

  5. Cutest video ever!
    If there were an Olympic chocolate-eating event, I'd be a gold medalist, for sure...except, apparently, I've got very little chocolate eating time left before stuff starts getting funky. :(

    1. You won't have to be a fly on the wall - in 10 years, there's going to be a documentary, "Kids Who Grew Up With Blogging Moms"!
