Little boys and girls are obviously different and there is always that standard “girls play with dolls and boys play with balls” thing I had heard about and witnessed but even so, I have been surprised at my son, Jacob.
With no encouragement from me, his entire life, apart from food and sleep seems to revolve around tractors, planes, helicopters, cars and balls. Ping Pong balls, Aussie Rules balls but most fun of all is the good old soccer ball as it least it bounces straight! Such a different lot of interests compared to his sisters at the same age.
I remember blogging something similar about him two years ago when he was only just 12 months old.
Volleyball has always been very popular in Thailand but with the recent success of the national women’s team at the Asian Championships where they won the gold medal all of a sudden it seems everyone is playing it.
Jacob watched with interest before deciding it was time to have a go as well.
