I am embarrassed to admit this.
Max will be eight years old this month.
Yesterday, I taught him to tie his shoes.
I know...it's a little late coming. Ok...very late coming!
I just figured somewhere along the way, someone else would teach him.
A teacher, dad, grandparent...someone would take the initiative, right?
Yesterday morning, just before Max's basketball game, I bit the bullet.
I sat him down, showed him one time, and ta-da...he had it!
Now, he is obsessed. He spent every moment that he was not in the game, tying and retying!
Those laces and his little fingers are exhausted!
