My son is older enough to be able to quickly repeat words and phrases we say. It’s pretty great. During football games, we teach him to say Go Blue. So now he stomps around the house, clapping, saying Go Blue!
After the last game, we taught him to say Beat Ohio, which sounds like BEE HI-o. I couldn’t be more proud.
I will of course raise him to cheer for Michigan, but I won’t be heartbroken if he decides he likes another team or school or even attends elsewhere. I will raise him to see all sides in more than just sports, but I will be happy if he chooses to cheer for Michigan, too.
