So, yesterday was their second practice and DH said it ran smoothly. We are talking 6 to 8 year olds, so he did have a small problem with the kids talking and not paying attention. Finally, after trying to get their attention, DH made the boys run a lap.
After the first lap Coach DH said, "So, are we going to listen, or are we going to run?"
The kids screamed, "Let's run!" and proceeded to run another lap.
After their second lap, Coach DH said, "So, are we ready to listen, or are we going to run again?"
The kids screamed, "Run again!" to which they then ran a third lap.
Finally, after the third lap, Coach DH got the response he was looking for. "Are we ready to listen, or do you need to run again!"
Kids: "We'll listen!"
Mean coach Daddy!
