I've tucked myself out of sight but I can hear him announcing his form and making all the appropriate martial artsy yells.
Two years ago, I would have worried about the sword because of his impulsivity but I don't worry now. He is actually beautiful to watch when doing martial arts - graceful yet precise. It's like he becomes a different person, someone more together than the boy who was almost late for the test because he put his gi on inside out. It's been good for him. I try to keep that in mind when the class schedule seems overwhelming.
Two kids in activities means that I have spent most of the afternoon driving between two places - Zeca's soccer practice and Miguel's belt test.
Sometimes, I wonder if they notice these things we do for them.
Do they take is for granted?
I think they do sometimes.
I hate that they do but I must admit that I love that we are so dependable and so supportive that they can take us for granted.
That's a luxury many don't have.
