The girl had a ball practice this afternoon. After a pretty cold and wet day the sun came out just in time and it was perfect weather.
The boy came and helped out which was a blessing for a couple of reasons – the other moms were so impressed that he was there helping out, a couple of them commented that they had noticed what a good kid he is; and also that my boy got to spend some really qulaity time with some men doing “guy stuff”. Those dads just included him like one of the guys and I could see him standing a little taller because of it.
On one of the pitches the coach yelled at a girl come on, swing harder – ball isn’t for princesses and unicorns.
One of the moms and I started laughing and she said any princess who can tame a unicorn is badass enough to play ball.
The whole afternoon was happiness. The kids are happy, we are safe, I love to see them thrive.
