Slam Dunkerz

Trey had his 1st basketball class today! Once we got past the "stretching" part at the beginning of the class things got better but since they were not allowed to hold their basketballs during this part Trey had a mini melt down and I had to escort him outside to have a "talk". I would say Trey does amazing at shooting the ball and making it, his listening skills on the other hand are not so good lol! One of the reasons that he might not have been cooperative at basketball could be that his Nike's were 2 whole sizes too small! (Yes I feel awful that I shoved his foot in the shoe not knowing) The entire class he kept saying "shoe off" so right after class I took his shoes off and decided we would go to Nordstroms and have his foot measured. Sure enough he measured 7 1/2 (plus he has the chubbiest feet ever that are square like) so we got 8's. The Nike's he wore that morning were a SIX!!!!!!
Now this brings me to a little side note--Can somebody please tell me why people feel the need to ask me "Oh does your husband play ball" and it is ALWAYS by a person working at a department store!!! This has happened multiple times since I have had Trey. I seriously do not get it--I don't think people mean to be rude by it at all, but come on people I know you are thinking this "white" chick (which I get have a reputation for being with athletes, but hello some of us were just super good friends in high school lol) who obviously is married to a black guy by looking at my children in the stroller (this is a whole other issue that cracks me up too) is out shopping away(which I don't shop that often I just do it all in one trip because HELLO my kids are 19 months apart and not fun to shop with) so her husband must be in the NFL??? I feel like saying NO he actually works in their family business which does NOT involve running down a court or field are you that stupid??? LOL What do you think, would that be coming off too strong)
Well I might as well share what happens when Mark and I go out together with the kids!!! Literally people have a fascination with what mixed babies/kids look like--when Mark and I are walking in the mall and we pay attention it is hilarious what people will do to try and get a look lol especially when they are small and in the bassinet part so you have to go behind us and look in, but people do it lol!!! It is freaking hilarious! I actually think this is the 1st time I have ever even blogged about us being black and white lol that's kind of funny...

You crack me up. I don't know that I would go out of my way to try and sneak a peek of a baby based on what the parents looked like, but you have to admit that MOST mixed babies are awfully pretty. I would never have considered the "playing ball" thing, but then again I grew up in the ghetto where mixed relationships are really common so it's not that big of a deal to me. I guess you can take it as a compliment that you're cute enough to pull a baller! HA!

I just found your blog from Jenna's blog hop. I am amazed at what people will say, although the professional athlete comment is the most random I have ever heard. We actually had a friend ask another friend, regarding her mixed kids, "what are they". She said human. It was quite funny!

Here from Jenna's Journey....your family is adorable! I can't believe you were able to get Trey started in b-ball so early! We haven't attempted any team sports yet but our 4.5 year old should be starting soccer this fall! Should be interesting!! :)
