All-Star Dreamin' Girls

Girls, do I have to tell ya how hard it is when 1 of your kiddos is a Super-Star at something like baseball and the lil guy coming up behind him runs after his big bro's baseball jersey for his own Glory???  It hurts a mothers heart to watch.  I wish Hubby would separate sports so we wouldn't have the eternal comparisons.  
Here's what happens instead:
He becomes the head Coach for lil guys team!!  He invents like 3 contraptions to use during practice sessions...

Of course...he still is Asst. Coach for big brother's team too.

We rally behind both of them best we can and encourage them and get them lessons and Hubby rushes home from work to go out back and work with them.
Hubby lives, breathes and dreams baseball (He's an engineer and comes at it from that vantage).

because eventually...All Stars MUST be selected!  Prayers go up...hopes run high.  A wife and Mom tries not to worry about feelings and dreams but have hope this will be the year for lil guy too!!
If your name gets called in a few days...
You get to be on THE TEAM!! 
You get a HAT...Jersey...T-SHIRTS with YOUR name on them to wear for years until they are shredded.
Yes girls...hopes are HIGH that this guy will not just be a spectator and fan this summer but get his own shot at Little League All-Stars braggin' rights!!

  2. I remember getting involved in my daughter's hobby de jour...she switched interests like underwear...first it was T-ball when she was little, then ballet, then tennis, then modeling...she had me spinning, but it was all wonderful!
    Glad you're out there enjoying your kids while you can. Soon they'll be all grown up.
    With love,
    Doris :-)
