Olympic Dreams

Aug 18, 2008

We have been watching quite a bit of the Olympics, particularly the swimming events because Patrick has been taking lessons all summer and he finds the personal connection exciting.

"I could swim that far," he says, eyeing the length of the pool. He couldn't, actually, but it is true that Patrick no longer resembles a twig caught in an eddy like he did when the summer started. His masterful forward crawl now cleaves the choppy waves of the indoor pool and sometimes he even remembers to breathe. We are very proud.

Realizing it is important to nuture burgeoning interests while instilling a respect for the dedication required to become an Olympic athlete; I turned to Patrick as we watched one of the swimming relays and said, "You know, Patrick, if you work very very hard that could be you one day." I gestured broadly at the television screen.

"Really?" He was amazed.

"Sure! It takes a tremendous amount of practice but if you want something enough to struggle for it, then absolutely. I know you could do it."

"Wow!" said Patrick.

I thought about how easy parenting is once you have the knack and I wondered whether Patrick would mouth "Thank You, Mom" as he bent to accept his medals or if he would wait until the post-ceremony interviews to explain to the world that I have always been his inspiration. It was a pleasant fantasy and I was in the process of doing the math on which Oylmpic Games we would be attending when Steve came to join us.

"Daddy!" Patrick said.
