my little footy fan

little freo fan

E. has decided that he is a Freemantle Dockers supporter. His dada is a die-hard North Melbourne fan and I barrack for the Sydney Swans so where exactly this decision has come from is anyone’s guess.  Last week’s interstate visitor is also a Kangaroos man and was putting the heavy word on my three year old to change teams… but nope E. was adamant he is a Dockers man. I was so proud of him standing up to adult pressure like that, knowing his own mind and sticking to his guns. Bravo to him I say.

His dada works with some mad Dockers supporters and one of them sent home some freo goodies… including this inflatable hand. We gave them to E. this afternoon as there was a good behaviour opportunity (the past couple of evenings he hasn’t been at his best and I don’t feel it is appropriate to pass on gifts at such bratty times). He was thrilled… so much so that I just noticed that he is wearing it to bed and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a photo.

  6. Good on him for sticking to his guns/ team!! We're not football people (well we like rugby) so we don't have team colours going on at home, maybe your son likes the colours?? He won't be anyone's pushover in life. Love Posie

  7. Gorgeous Pic!! Love how he's made his own mind up about who he wants to support and you guys allow him the freedom !
    We have alot of NM supporters in our extended family, and the poor little ones have no choice!
    Were our boys brilliant or were we brilliant. And how was Kirky swapping his shirt with Black ( and being topless for a bit too.!!!)
