And, it's not my fault. I mean, let's get real. I am not a big fan of non-fiction books. Gabriel lives and breathes them. I have never been a fan of history, although I am starting to enjoy it, now. Gabriel has always loved history. I would much rather do math or read smut any day of the week, than force myself to sit down and read a book about the fall of Rome. Now, don't get me wrong. Now that I am an adult, I am learning to love history. In fact, I think it is one of the most fascinating subjects we study. But, it isn't something I do for fun. Most children don't obsessively read about the Greek gods. Gabriel does.
The other day, Gabriel was preparing for a Tae Kwon Do tournament. I told him that he needed to stop thinking, and just let his body do what he'd taught it. I told him, "Just do it. Like Nike says."
Gabriel looked at me with a funny look on his face and said, "No, she didn't."
*sigh* How many 11 year old male children would immediately leap to the Greek goddess, Nike, instead of the shoe company? He's obviously out of touch.
