The Reluctant Spectator

Wyatt wants to play soccer so bad. It is difficult for him to stay on the sidelines. He edges closer and closer to the field until his toes are across the sideline. He walks away and watches for an opportunity when no one is paying attention.


I was across the field taking pictures and Wyatt spotted me and took off. Coach Daddy had to run and catch him and deliver him back to the sideline.

It’s best to keep a hand on Wyatt at the sideline; he is not happy to be there.

He doesn’t like to sit in his chair, although he will stay for a few minutes with a snack.


The best option is to keep him high off the ground away from temptation.



One more year buddy and you will get your chance.
