Officially, I became a bonafide, real uncle when he was born. My Mom became a Grandmother, and my older sis become a Mom. So much can change. The world can shift is seismic ways when a child is born. (Take that Jesus kid, for example.)
Surely enough, our lives haven't been the same since he walked in. He's a very sweet kid. Anyone who knows him can't help but like him. (Girls his age, and some older ones for that matter, ADORE him.)
He's a talented athlete who happens to be good at math and drawing. (He is half Asian, after all.)
Happy Birthday to my dear, sweet Tyler!
I am blessed to have some super adorable nephews and a niece in my life. My one nephew is kind of the angry, brooding type, but he's unbelievably adorable nonetheless . . . (This is one of my favorite photos of him. ) [caption id="attachment_349" align="alignnone" width="225" caption="Angry AND Adorable!!"][/caption] Then of course, there's my tiny, but very tough, niece. I took this photo last year. It was just one of those moments when she did something adorable . . . Then, there's my 0ldest nephew/football star. He's turning out to be very charming and easygoing. I still remember having to change his diapers many moons ago. He's still a great kid. [caption id="attachment_351" align="alignnone" width="225" caption=" My oldest nephew back in the day."][/caption] Finally, there's Bubba. I think that, more than any of the others, he's perhaps the most eccentric. He always seems to have a very clear idea of what he likes and wants. He's not shy, and he's a darn good dancer too. Watching these kids grow up is quite a sight to behold. They have their own personalities and opinions, and they can be refreshingly honest about so much. I also have two nephews through my older brother who I have not actually had the chance to meet yet. They live far far away in the Philippines. I hope to meet them someday. For myself, I don't think having kids will be part of my destiny. I have other worlds to explore and other vistas to behold. In the meantime, I'm having a wonderful time as "Uncle". -g
Well, here I am, the typical mat maid falling for one of the wrestlers. Normally its no biggy, most stat girls are dating someone on the team. My big plot twist? I'm not only the team manager, but also, the coach's daughter. And unfortunately, daddy might not like me dating one of his kids. I mean, its not like he's a bad kid or anything, but let's face it. He's a high school boy. And high school boys talk to each other. What would people think if they found out he was dating a coach's daughter? Probably that he was only doing it to get out of log rolls at the end of practice. (Not that my dad would ever let him skip log rolls.) But people are people, and they will assume things. I know I shouldn't care what people think, and to be honest, I don't really. But I do care about what my dad thinks and this is his job. I feel like I shouldn't be creating issues for him at work because of my own selfish reasons. I just, don't know what to do at this point...
That being said...
I Really like this guy. I mean, obviously he's a wrestler which gives him like 10,000 brownie points. But its more than that, he's like REALLY shy, he always looks down and talks very quietly. But when you get him to open up to you, when you see him laugh... OH EM GEE. It just gives me the most amazing feeling. It's like, my heart is glowing, and melting all at the same time. And his family is WONDERFUL! He has a sister who is like, one of THE nicest people ever. And his mom! She is such a gem! His dad is sort of shy like he is, but he's still a great guy. and ARGHHHH I just, the more I think about him the more I'm imagining my life with him and how fun, and simple it would be. At this point, that's exactly what I'm looking for. I don't need to complicate things, I just want to spend all the time I can with him, and just, be with him.
But I have to wait.
I mean, he's a senior, so this is his last year being on my dad's team. So as soon as this season is over, there shouldn't be a problem with me dating him right? The only problem is he's like, a REALLY GOOD wrestler, so I'm sure he's going to state.. and that means I have to wait even LONGER! Arghhh. But oh well, I mean, if anyone's worth waiting for, its definitely him.(:
