If you read my last post, you know my son, Bubba, broke his wrist. His arm is in a cast. This hasn't stopped him from having fun.
He was invited to a birthday party for one of his friends - a bowling party.
"Are you sure you want to go?" I asked. "We could just drop off the present and come home."
He looked at me like I had three eyeballs. "Are you crazy, Mama? I'm going. And I'm bowling!"
All right, then.
I brought him to the bowling alley and stayed for a little while, just to make sure he was okay. The boy got on his bowling shoes (with a little help), and grabbed a ball. This was a major challenge because he broke his dominant wrist. I thought for sure he was going to drop the ball on his big toe and break that! But no. He wobbled to the lane and heaved the ball on to it. I watched as it snaked along, bumping into the gutter guards.
There's no way he's going to get even one pin down, I thought.
Boy, was I wrong! On the last bounce off the gutter guard, it made a dead aim for the center pin...and knocked all of them down!
I was in a complete state of disbelief.
Bubba turned around and gave me a big grin. "See, Mama. I'm even better with a broken wrist!"
Lol!!.. I'm such a crappy bowler.. all style and no substance. Your son would have beaten me.. even with his broken wrist!ReplyDelete
Haha! You might've done better than usual with the gutter guards, though!Delete
Good for him!ReplyDelete
Bubba knows best!
Best he had the best game of his life!ReplyDelete
He told me he had gotten a couple more strikes after I had left. The boy is better than me! ;0)Delete
Maybe that's my problem: I'm bowling with the correct hand. Go, Bubba, go!ReplyDelete
Try it with the incorrect hand. ;0)Delete
hope that doesn't give him any ideas.....ReplyDelete
No kidding! One broken wrist is quite enough!Delete
Love his spirit.ReplyDelete
He certainly doesn't let things stop him!Delete
LOL that is awesome, never know what one can do until they tryReplyDelete
Oh, the happy adaptability of the young!ReplyDelete
I guess I probably wouldn't have wanted to pass up the chance to bowl, either!Delete
You don't need entertainment with your kids around. . .He's a trooper, especially when there's a party at stake.ReplyDelete
My world is quite entertaining!Delete
You can't keep a determinated boy down for long.ReplyDelete
Wow, that's great! Makes me think about how us adults complicate things too much. We're better off looking at life through a child's eyes. :)ReplyDelete
That's our Bubba. We all have a stake in raising that boy. It's a tribute to your writing that we feel we know Bubba.ReplyDelete
Haha! I'm sure everyone who's been following me a while feels as if they know him. He's really a personable young man. I wish you could meet him in person!Delete
*LOL* Way to go, Bubba! :)ReplyDelete
Aw, that's awesome! Glad to see he's able to still have fun with a broken wrist... :)ReplyDelete
He pretty much has fun, no matter what.Delete
I love his determination! He's inspiring. :)ReplyDelete
Ha! Almost like your Sunday Inspirations. ;0)Delete
Way to hit the strikeReplyDelete
I'm sure there's no way I could've done that!Delete
Awesome! He should hook up with Jo @ http://henderson-jo.blogspot.com/ she was of fire while bowling, too! Good job, Bubba!ReplyDelete
I'm sure she'd love him as a bowling partner. (Although she might end up laughing more than bowling!)Delete
I'm sorry about his wrist.ReplyDelete
That's awesome. He is determined.
He certainly doesn't let a little cast stop him!Delete
HA! I love this. Mr. Lucky, indeed. He has a great attitude :)ReplyDelete
That he does!Delete
That's a great story! Hope his wrist heals soon :-)ReplyDelete
It'll be 4 weeks in the cast. But it's a cool camo color, so he's thrilled with it!Delete
Reverse my bowling with my golf average and I could turn pro in both sports.ReplyDelete
Hahaha! You sound a little like me!Delete
That's so funny, Sherry. I can't believe he did that! Good job, BubbaReplyDelete
He had a great time at the party!Delete
Aww...he did great. Hugs to him.ReplyDelete
I'll give him one just for you!Delete
