Sooo….if you know our family, you know that I have a little cowboy…….it makes my mama heart feel better to still call him “little”.
This story begins when he was about 2 1/2 years old and THE Girl was not even crawling yet…….YES I KNOW YOU HAVE HEARD THIS ONE, but it leads up to the next one, so bear with me!!!! SHEEESH!!!!!
I am in the kitchen making something and I hear this little distressed squeaking noise from the living room…..I walk around the corner and there is THE Girl on her stomach with her big brother on her back…….he has a rope under her and has one hand high in the air…..
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!” I ask ever so calmly!!!
“I was just riding sissy like a bull!”
***Things you NEVER imagine coming out of your mouth as a mother………“NOOOOOO……..you CAN NOT ride your sister like a bull!!!!!”
He never again pretended that THE girl was a bull, but the couch arm, the footboard of the bed, the toy box….etc…..was fair game.
I REALLY thought he would someday grow out of this stage, but at almost 12 (aaaaggghhhhhh) he still wants to be a bull rider. So what does a mother do in a case like this…….?!?!?! TAKE HIM TO MEET PROFFESIONAL BULL RIDERS, of course!!!!!
So he hung out with and talked smack (lots of it) with Luke Kelley, Lorenzo Rios, and Fransisco Morales! I REALLY think Cory and Luke were cut from the same cloth! OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! They talked smack for a good 20 minutes till Cory shut him down with “I’ve had more girlfriends than you will ever have in your dreams.” That is when Luke turned to me and told me “He definently talks like a bull rider!” oh my!!!!
What I got from the whole experience…………This is what I wanna do when I grow up!!!!!!!……..
