What's a mom to do ...

when she has to teach this mumbo jumbo
to this Cutest Football Player in the World?
That paper means about as much to me as a sewing pattern means to Mr. Jones. I'm thinking the 6 year old was probably feeling about the same. So I looked and looked to find a game or something that might have some football guys that I could use to teach him the positions. Then I stopped by our neighborhood toy store, hoping they would have something, but thinking there was really no chance that they would. I went in, and I turned the corner on aisle 2, and there it was. Football Guys.
Just what we needed.

My kitchen table was transformed.
Football was played.
Positions learned.
Touchdown. (Sorry, I couldn't resist)

My son played football a couple years ago so I know what you are going through. I think I needed that game more than my son!

I know what toy store you bought that from ;)...That actually looks fun...I love football but still don't understand all the rules...I just watch wherever the ball is. Another reader to use besides bloglines is google reader...I need to add you to my feed as well!

cutest post EVER!! I was going to suggest football for dummies but you trumped that one! This is why I just have gorls. I would have ran to my room crying.

Oh my goodness...I do believe that you have just saved my life. My son just started fotoball. Reluctantly. Very, extremely, excessively reluctantly. He is a great kid, no problems, no rebellion. Until his parents and his youth pastor decided that all of the boys should be in football. It's been a semi-crisis in our house, but I believe that "fear-of-the-unknown" is the underlying culprit...I am going out to buy this game today!

Duh, fotoball...can you believe I just typed that? Maybe I need to look for a spelling game while I'm in that aisle too!
