Illustration Friday - FAIL

my 5yr old started soccer this year and he really doesn't seem that interested ....after each match it doesn't matter if they win or lose he gets upset that he failed to kick a goal... we remind him that what really matters is him having fun and being part of a great team....

one of my favourite proverbs is
Fall down seven times, stand up eight

we all feel like failures some time or other but you just got to get up and try again....
For more FAIL illos check out Illustration friday


  1. Argh, that "don't let your failures get you down" thing... so important to remember and so easy to forget!

  2. I know it is so hard to watch our kids suffer, even in a small way. I hope he begins to enjoy the game more. My older two (16 and 13) have played since they were very small but my youngest has never been interested in any sports....for me that was disappointing, but he has his own passions.

  3. Awww, that was my son 6 years ago :)

    It's really not till they're around 9 when they start to realise soccer is a team sport lol.
