9 years, 2 months.
As you’re now in the 2nd half of your 3rd grade school year, I am noticing the acute progression of how you are starting to care more about what you wear… and your hair.
I am sensing that halfway into 3rd grade, part of the culture is to start trying to stand out with what you wear to school.
So when you proudly wore your new WWE wrestling shirt to school, I knew to immediately ask you when I got home, “Did anyone notice your new shirt?”
I see this is as the beginning of you discovering the fine line between presenting yourself as an individual, while at the same time between aware of what is current and trending.
Like clockwork, the moment you turned 9 years old (just a couple of weeks ago), you instinctively knew to trade in all of your interest and fascination of Pokemon, for WWE Wresting.
It’s amazing how much trivia you know about all the wrestlers already.
Mommy looked up online to see if by chance, a WWE event would be coming to Nashville anytime soon.
We were in luck: Monday Night Raw would be taking place at the Bridgestone Arena on December 2nd.
Needless to say, Mommy immediately bought the tickets (just $15 each)!
Your favorite wrestler is the masked Mexican-American living legend Rey Mysterio. Naturally, you had your hopes up that he would actually be at the event we would be attending.
When you looked up the roster the WWE website, he was not featured as one of the wrestlers for that night.
But our amazement, this past Monday night, we were pleasantly surprised when Rey Mysterio made multiple appearances throughout the night!
We could not have planned it that way had we tried.
The event started at 6:30 PM and it wasn’t over until 4 hours later! I had never been to a WWE wrestling event either, so I had no idea we would be getting so much bang for our buck.
It was definitely a coming of age milestone for you and I am so proud to have gotten to share it with you.
