In the middle of conjugating French verbs

We continue to learn just how truly special our beloved Henry is.

We don’t mean to shame you and your babies. We’re sure they’re fantastic but our Henry, he’s playing football, y’all. That’s soccer to you less cultured Americans. At two months! Already his skill is unparallelled among his peers.

Why, just yesterday we were at a play date and this other baby, a 3-month-old, didn’t even know what a soccer ball was!

    Man U plays Chelsea tomorrow, not Barca. The Champions League final isn’t until May 28.

    Of course I meant Chelsea! Don’t know why I put Barcelona being that we are having a football party to watch the match today. I’d just been checking flight prices to Barcelona so must have had it on the brain. That’s what getting old does to you!

  7. jeneria says:

    Understandable. I’m just a Liverpool fanatic so today’s match is of great interest to me! :D
