We had an amazing time playing basketball against the boys and girls at the neighborhood elementary school this past week. It was four parents against 20 of those minions. Talk about hustle. None of us has ever had to dribble that much to get down the court.
The idea was sparked by Kids After Hours, a Montgomery County Maryland organization that sets up programs for your kids before and after school. They organize active events, sports, games and competitions to keep your pride and joy burning calories constantly. So how could the Fit Fathers team turn down an offer to play against a football team of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders? It was amazing. Suffice to say, we encourage all dads to participate in your child’s sporting and after school activities whenever possible. The euphoric vibes and elation are beneficial to both parties. Work can wait, your child’s memories and emotions cannot!
