Baseball season has begun.
My son is a high school freshman. His team played six games over the last eight days. This week they "only" have four games. I'm already re-developing last season's bleacher butt and there's a long, long, season ahead of us.
I love baseball, don't get me wrong. I've always loved watching all three of my kids participate in sports. It's just a tremendous time suck.
Do you have any idea how ridiculous some of these competitive Orange County parents are with their kids and sports? Sheesh!
Wish me a baseball season filled with patience, patience, and more patience.
The ability to keep my smart-ass mouth closed … the most difficult task of all.
(** The above photo was taken by a friend at the moment of contact on a home run hit by my son a couple years ago. Awesome photography! The ball is actually flat from the force of the hit – so cool! **)
