My Little Superstar

I will refrain from telling you every single detail of Jack's first track meet last Friday. You probably don't need to know what kind of energy
bar he ate beforehand or how I forgot to get his
gel inserts and worried about it the entire meet. But I do hope you'll indulge me this small moment of Mom Pride...this moment where my kid got out there on the track and did something completely unexpected. (That's him, on the far left.)

Oh, sure, we knew he could run. He's a sporty kid, his standard mode of motion is running. But I didn't know he could run like this.

100m dash: 1st place
200m dash: 1st place
400m dash: 2nd place
Who'd a thunk it? Go, Pre!


  1. That rocks, Tam. And I had to hear about it on Hello!

  2. How exciting! I used to run track in high school, and I know how great that feeling of first place can be (didn't get to feel it much, but when I did, oh boy!) Congrats to your son!!

  3. That's wonderful! Definitely something to brag about.

    My son runs track, hasn't won, but he really enjoys it.

    Stopping by from SITS.

  4. Congrats on the track star! You're entitled to be a proud Mom!

    Thanks for visiting my blog; hope you'll come often!
