Joey has always been such a brilliant child so it didn't surprise me when he wanted to learn chess. He spent hours playing chess while he was learning the game.
It also didn't surprise me when he wanted to go to the town center and have a match with one of the chess champs. I figured, he will lose but it will be a good learning experience.
Saturday morning I took Joey to the town center and he went up to one of the chess champs and asked for a match. The champ grinned and told him to take a seat.
Joey became fidgety in his seat trying to outsmart the champ. After several hours, the chess champ won the match.
Surprisingly, Joey wasn't upset at all. He told me,
“Mom, I'm going to be sitting out there one day.” And I knew in my heart that he would be.
Joey is now one of the chess champs that sits in the town center. No one has beat him yet.
