I ♥ rugby

I love rugby.  Right from little bulletjie rugby, through to the Springboks.  I ♥ rugby.

Tuesday Jason announced that he doesn’t want to play rugby anymore.

……

Okay

……

No more early Saturday mornings I tell myself.  No more sitting next to the rugby field twice a week at the rugby practise.

…..

But I’m going to miss that.  I love cheering him on.  I love watching him practise.  I love getting a chance to do nothing next to the rugby field but be there for him.  I love being able to take that many photos of him.

Did I tell him that?

No.  I told him that if he really doesn’t want to play anymore, it’s totally okay with me.  That it is his decision.

I do worry that he will be pushed out of his friendship circle.  I do worry that the other rugby boys won’t want to play with him anymore but we will have  cross that bridge, if and when it happens.

For now though … no more bulletjie rugby.

I’m going to miss it.

  1. Who knows? Maybe he will change his mind. Many years of rugby still to come.

  3. Its great that you’re not forcing him to continue. Too many kids are pressured into competing in a sport.

    You are so good to let him do what he wants to, a lot of parents push their children too much to do things they don’t want to.
