This is not a rant about the weather - really it's not. The weather here has been close to perfect, we even woke up this morning to discover it had rained.
But yes, some where , like here, Hell has frozen over. One of MY children signed up for a team sport. Charles , the oldest is not a team sports player. He likes it to be all about him and competeing withhimself, he's like his mother like that. He also is basically lazy when it comes to sports - me again.
Tommy it seems, is our joiner. He convoinced us that baseball would be fun. He'd LOVE to play baseball.
I'd rather poke something sharp in my eye.
I hate group sports.
I hate sitting in the hot sun watching group sports.
I hate sitting in the hot sun watching group sports with out an icy cold alcoholic beverage even more.
But, I will go and cheer my son on because that's what moms do.
I wish though, he'd adopted his brother's policy of not liking to sweat and run in the hot August sun.
I tried in vain to get Tommy to sign up for hockey. When it's 103° in the shade, I'd much rather sit in a cool hockey stadium that in a weedy, seedy baseball field on metal bleachers and emboss theose little lines into the back of my legs. Oh well.
He'll learn about cooperation and team work right?
