Letters of Intent - Play Ball

 

Dear Itty Bit,

You knew this was coming…

I mean, after entertaining the soccer team last season, you had to know I was gonna call you out for your t-ball antics?

(oh, and let’s not forget the Chicken Dance)

But this year, you’ve come up with some new material.  Honey… the reason we have to watch the ball, is because that little sucker can bounce into cute little boys.

(ah the joys of indoor practice in the rainy Northwest)

Next time you take a direct hit, please don’t wail to the crowd,

“the ball hit my balls!  THE BALL HIT MY BALLS!”

Because while they surely didn’t mean to, they couldn’t help but laugh.

And once again honey… this is not soccer.

Duuuuude.  Timing is everything.  I love me some fresh dandelions as much as the next momma, but please wait until the seventh inning stretch to deliver your floral gift.

And I don’t have pictures of it because I was too busy wildly gesturing to operate a camera… but I love that you hit the ball, then stood there as everyone screamed at you to run to first base.

I love that you looked confused at the parents and coaches, then trotted off to first base.

Then threw your bat down on the base.

Let’s work on that, mkay?

You’re my favorite slugger.

 

Love,

Your Momma Who Already Knows This Is Gonna Be  a Crazy Ride

oh my gosh this brought back memories!! my favorite was my middle son in 1st grade. playing catcher he had to wear a "cup" and he was sooooo worried everyone would know. ya, well they wouldn't have had a clue had he not gotten to 2nd base and started knocking on it.....gotta love little boys!!!!

Oh my goodness!! T Ball is both a joy and torture all rolled into one!! The tears, the laughter, the confused journey around the bases!!

@sara...that is HYSTERICAL!!

Amy said...

He make me smile so big :-) I would pay big money to watch him play ANY sport I do believe. Perhaps chess will be his sport ;-) hahaha! He is still young so don't worry! He will get there! I just want to huuuuuuuuuuug him!!!!!

I love little kid baseball.
Mine is busy playing with dirt while he is supposed to be soccering!

Kmama said...

I love T-ball. Seriously love it. This will be Buddy's third year. I'm almost sad that he knows what to do now. LOL

Bethany said...

Hilarious. Poor kid. May he be able to have children. AWESOME that he got a hit. Was that his first game?

Foursons said...

OK, first off why do they have sweatshirts with soccer balls on them for baseball?

And oh my gosh his screaming that the ball hit his balls is HILARIOUS! Bwhahahahaha. Time for Mr. D to take him to go buy that special boy equipment at the sporting goods store.

I always crack up when kids hit the ball and then don't know where to run. It's especially funny when they go to 3rd base.

Thanks for linking up with all the craziness going on over there. Love ya girly.

Tiffany said...

Oh that is awesome! And it's only just begun... :)

stephanie said...

oh my gosh, I was rolling reading this! my athletic ability and antics are about on par with his :)

RaD said...

Umm... Yeah, I wouldn't have been able to help laughing at him either. Sorry, but that is just too funny.

My favorite antic from my daughter when she was in Debs (similar to pee wee baseball but for girls) was when she was on first base for the first time ever. The girl behind her struck out and so she was standing a first base a wee bit too long. She got bored and put her helmet on backwards over her face. When her coaches told her to run she went all the way to second base with her head cocked back so she could see, but her helmet was still on backwards. Unfortunately she loved the laughter and it took a bit of explaining a little bit of scolding for her to get that it was funny the first time because it was unitentional but the second, third and fourth times were not so cute ('cept they kinda were but we couldn't let her know that!).

Little boys and baseball (of any caliber) are just too cute. When our youngest was playing ball, he thought he had to put the runner out by beaning him with the ball, instead of throwing it to the baseman. Fortunately, all survived to grow older - and so will Itty Bit.

Praying for you and your family.

Those pics of Itty Bitty are cute!!

Susan said...

He's so stinkin' cute! My son used to watch airplanes and chase butterflies in the field when he was in his first year of t-ball. He also became pretty good at cartwheels while he was ignoring the action at the plate. I'v got a grandson starting t-ball this year. I can't wait!

Beth Zimmerman said...

That child could be Josiah's twin! I need to dig out some of those photos from 15+ years ago to show you! And I suspect the heart will be just as special! Hug him close while you can! Time flies too fast!

TIFFANY said...

T-ball is the best kids' sport to watch! I love it!

I gave you an award. Stop by and pick it up when you can. :)

I LOVE watching little kids play ball! It's so fun and innocent. Then they grow up into those hardcore, win-only, teenagers. Have a fun wild ride! :)

Heading over to check out the giveaways. Mama would LOVE to have a new camera strap!!

Shana said...

Well, if that isn't the cutest thing ever I don't know what is lol. He looks so much like you and your MOm Rachel it is crazy. By the way, I would enter the giveaway but I don't have a camera that it will work on so don't think I am not supporting you!!

Heather said...

Oh man, if all of Itty Bit's soccer antics weren't funny enough, here comes T-ball!!! Hilarious!! Reading these posts makes me look forward to sports with Aidan someday!

Buckeroomama said...

Oh, that boy of yours --he makes me smile big. =)

Itty Bit sure looks dandy with his new glasses!

robin said...

LOL!!!!! Too cute! Now that my kindergartener plays soccer (first season,) I find myself saying the weirdest things as he's playing..."Stop Dancing!" "Hello?! Run the OTHER way!" ...these are the best days of our lives, eh?! :)

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

He's so cute...and funny!!! I loved watching Dylan play his first year of T-Ball. It's like a comedy skit!
