"I AM NERVOUS"....again!
Those of you who have followed our blog for the last few months will remember soccer season...Kylee would not play! We finally figured out that if Tyler coached she was not "nervous" and would actually step foot on the field. Well, basketball season started last week and Tyler is the coach. (I wonder why?) She played last week with no complaints and even scored a basket! Well, Tyler is out of town tonight so guess what happened!?? Kylee would not play. The collage of pictures above is the step by step negotiation that took place. I bribed her with everything from Polly Pockets to dinner at Applebees. As you can see, it worked for a minute. She played one quarter of the game, smiled for a picture, decided she no longer wanted to play, and then broke down in the last 2 minutes of the game because she realized that there was no reward because she did not play. She then decided that she wanted to play for the last minute - I told her NO! Her team was on the court and she had spent the entire game throwing a fit...so she sat on the sideline and cried. Her excuses ranged from not feeling well to just being nervous. We just never know. The point? This might be our last attempt at making our little girl an athlete. She just might join the tradition of my sisters and become a cheerleader! Yikes!
