And that, my friends, is why our kids might be a wee bit competitive.

The other night at dinner, Jon asked Logan how soccer practice was that day.

Good. The green team got 1 point and the red team got 2 points. I was on the red team and scored one of the goals.

Nice! So you won.

No Dad, nobody won.

Buddy, 2-1 means you won.

No Dad. You have to get 3 points to win. Nobody won.

Jon looks at me confused. I try to hide my smirk and tell him I think this is a game where nobody loses because they're all winners. Jon says, that's ridiculous!

He then turns to Logan and says, I don't care what they say, you won. 2-1 is a great score. In fact, in most professional soccer games, they rarely score 3 goals anyway. So, you definitely won.
