Craziness of finals week has saturated me and Carrot (as always!) came up with a great idea: Interviewing T! I didn’t take it seriously at first but I was running out of time and my research loaded¹ brain was not coming up with anything better. Being a Mass Communication major means many things, but one of these is that I can practice interviewing with my son. He has come with me to several interviews that I have had to do for school projects and is, to my surprise, very aware of the whole process. “Mami, little kids understand more than you think,” he said. T was right, I was in awe by his reaction and excitement as soon as I told him that I would be interviewing him, “Me?! You will be interviewing ME?!” he jumped and started to ask about the camera and where and how he had to sit. This time will only be audio, but do not fret, this kid is up for anything.
discusses rock climbing, the outdoors, and fear. At the same time, he opens up about his relationship with his friends and nature, giving the audience some exciting news about future rock climbing plans.
Son, I am proud of you and in love with your beautiful soul. Keep learning, keep loving and overcoming your fears… Mami is here, to hold your hand.
What reactions have you gotten from kids about rock climbing or any other discipline? Remember… “Little kids understand more than you think!”
T said it! Winter 2018: Rock climbing road trip! We are SO SO excited! We are still planning some things out so more details when the date comes closer 😅 For now.. Any recommendations? First time T is forming part of such a big adventure! Anything special you’d like us to write about? Let us know!!!
*Did you notice me reminding him about it?😂
