Taking kids to a college football game would be a nightmare for a lot of people, but me and my husband manage somehow. We have twin 5 year olds and they love going to football games with us because they're so energetic. Sometimes I get weary chasing after them because we waited a while to have kids but I still love doing it.
They have a little festival the few hours before each home game where they set up a bunch of kids-geared stuff on the campusÕs quad. There are things like inflatable slides and . Before the season opener we took the twins there to blow off some steam before we would have to go and sit in the stand for a few hours and they got in line for the slide. I thought I'd be able to go and get a drink while they were doing that but I ended up having to stand near because I couldn't hear well enough to feel OK about them sliding on the slide.
When we got home from the ball game i decided that maybe I need hearing aides to keep up so I bought them.
Now I feel better about going out in public with them and being aware of what's going on around us.
