baseball lessons

Baseball is almost over.  I’ve hardly mentioned it.


Seth-7yr running the bases and Mom and I watching in disbelief as his ‘cup’ moves from original crotch position to his ANKLE as he runs. Lesson learned: do NOT wear boxer briefs with a cup.  I met him in the dugout and he gave me the big serious brown eyes and i told him to just discreetly let it fall out his pants and just put it in his bag. I tried not to call any more attention to this event with laughing or crying or smothering him in kisses but it was REALLY difficult. OH SO CUTE.

He’s playing catcher and doing well.

Caden-9yr is a truly superb base runner, and more so when he has to go to the bathroom. Again, Mom and I watched from the stands, clutching each other in sympathetic agony every time he shifted, sat, squatted, punched his cup, crossed his legs, turned red, danced, grabbed himself, or almost stole a base without permission just so he could get to the bathroom faster. His cup truly did runneth over that day. it was painful to watch. He sprinted to the bathroom with a bright red metallic batting helmet still on his head, and emerged with it positioned conspicuously like a bunch of fig leaves.  Lesson learned: potty BEFORE.

I’ve been present this season, but only from a much larger distance than usual. no idea what it is about married baseball coach types who think that flirting with moms is an inherent part of their coach role. There seems to be one like that every year. It’s so disappointing. Lesson learned:  park super far away at practices and keep to myself even more than usual.

also? I cleaned out my purse and got the car washed. That may not seem noteworthy to you. But that’s only because you haven’t seen my purse or car lately. i simply HAD to share that.

I found a baseball in my purse. It’s been lost in there for over a month.

Whoah, what just happened to the formatting here?

Nevermind.  need to take dog to vet soon so I can’t fix it.

She’s fine. the dog. But she’s butt scooting. I told my mom she was ‘boot scooting’ earlier. I meant to say butt scooting. I do not address butt scooting. I leave it to professionals.

And I do not address formatting issues. I leave that to just annoy us all and hope next time it’s somehow better.

I had been wondering if the boys were playing this season, since you had not mentioned it. Glad to hear you are enjoying it just as much as last year ;)

I personally envy your purse and car cleaning, because I need to do both. REALLY need to do both. I too wondered how baseball was going this year – hope the boys are still enjoying it!

Um. Caden imagery had me laughing my socks off. Well. It would have if I had been wearing socks to begin with. Bless his heart. :)

Is it terrible that I thought, “Well at least finding a baseball in her purse is better than, say, penis soap”? Am I in trouble for wondering that? =) I don’t comment often, but had to share this thought so my head wouldn’t explode. Plus, my husband wouldn’t understand my reason for such mirth.
