Last week as Benjamin was getting ready for his first cross country meet, he asked what Melissa's time was in the race that she did last year. After I told him, he said,"Hmmm. I can beat that!"
Ah, yes. Competitiveness is alive and well in our family.
So, Saturday come and Benjamin went to the meet.
And totally pooped out before he could finish the race!! We all were disappointed! Even though he took his asthma meds before the race, he got to a point that he could not longer breathe. So, he stopped, laid down on the ground to catch his breath.
Which, of course, was a good thing since breathing is sort of important.
Latter in the day after Melissa heard what happened within just a few minutes she had a comment of her own: "Well, at least now he can't brag that he did better than me."
Oh, the love just never stops.....
(We are waiting for the results of an some asthma testing in order to see what the best way to treat him.)
