Finn and his friends really like playing sports. I really love that. It’s way better than playing video games.
There is one thing that becomes annoying, when your kid is playing multiple sports, it’s the schedule coordination.
It’s not unusual to have one game in the morning and a different sport game in the afternoon. It becomes too much and overwhelming for the kid and the parents.
Another thing that becomes annoying is that each sport requires its own gear. For example, football cleats cannot be used as soccer cleats. Football cleats have cleats at the toe and could cause some damage if the opposing team is kicked with them. I learned that this last weekend.
Finn had a soccer game on Saturday and then a football game on Sunday. We went to try on his soccer shoes from last season, which was just in April and his shoes were too tight. He was unable to get his soccer shoes on. His feet had grown that much in the last few months.
So my reasoning was well…we’ll just use his football cleats. Why have two sets of shoes? Let’s consolidate.
Not so fast Couret. I was pulled aside by one of the coaches that let me know, that the cleats that Finn was wearing were illegal. We had to buy new soccer shoes.
This has been the third set of soccer shoes that we had to buy Finn this year. He is growing like a weed and none of his clothes are able to last for more than 6 months.
As I’ve said in the past, I hate shopping. I find it very boring.
Knowing that this kid is growing so much, we bought him soccer shoes a full size larger than his actual size. His shoes now look like flippers, but I know what will happen if we didn’t buy them that big.
He would need to get new shoes in a few months and I’ll get annoyed.
Predicting how certain events will turn out and planning accordingly, is a good way to a happy life.
Many people know that going to the dentist, makes them anxious but do nothing about it. Most of them will just grin and bear it. Most people don’t even know there is a solution.
Here at Dente, we offer Anxiety Free Dentistry. Anxiety Free Dentistry is an anxiety reducing protocol, that helps patients get through their appointments is a relaxed state.
They are given an anxiety reducing pill the night before and one the morning of their appointment. These patients will report that the numbing was more effective and they did not feel any discomfort whatsoever.
They report that their recovery was a lot better as well. Or that they barely remember the appointment experience at all.
