i never, ever talk to my two little boys about lifting or anything. they are 3-1/2 and almost 2.
today, i was putting my oldest down for a nap. he looked at me and said “daddy, i’m going to be bigger than you one day.”
i laughingly responded “oh yeah?”
he calmly answered, “yes. i’m going to lift weights and win trophies, just like you.”
i’ve only competed all of twice, ever - and the kids have never come along to a meet. my heart is swelling with pride this afternoon…
