We should tell our kids to just have fun participate and not get bent on winning or losing. But every coach when they say that they say it tongue in cheek ‘Don’t worry about winning’: If you win I’ll get you ice cream but if you lose I’m going to pout in the car.
My sister has three kids so I’ve spent a lot of time around children and I’ve always really liked them and wanted my own. It’s cool because you think all babies are the same but they aren’t at all. They all have such different personalities. It’s crazy.
I don’t put anything in front of taking ski racing and sports seriously.
It’s nice being brought up with no money at all. It’s just not how I measure success so that makes it a bunch easier.
My daughter’s name is Neesyn Dacey but everyone calls her Dacey. Her mom chose Neesyn and I chose Dacey after she was born. The mother is a good friend of mine who I was seeing a while ago. We are no longer together.
My mom played the recorder. But not having electricity we had minimal exposure to music. As I got a little older we had Walkmans and things that were battery-powered but it would have been nice to be growing up in the iPod era. A tape only has six songs on a side.
