But not literally - he actually hit very well tonight. Baseball season has officially begun. We are back at the fields for another round of Live and Breathe Baseball and Softball for the Spring. Ah, don't you just love it? I am particularly fond of freezing my rear off on the metal bleachers. Also one of my favorite things is red baseball mud tracked into the house on the bottom of cleats. Ah, I digress. The reality is that I love baseball season especially because of the families that we play with. We have played with most of these folks for almost 3 years and many of them have become our extended family.
Thank goodness this group is understanding and family like, because sometimes my funny boy can say some doozies. Tonight he comes over in front of the bleachers and all the parents wearing his catcher's gear (his favorite position). He proceeds to show us all the chest guard part of the gear and demonstrate what the flap hanging down is for. Swinging it back and forth he announces, "It's the PEEPER FLAP MOM!" Ah, yes, son, that is designed to protect your peeper. If I wasn't certain my fellow baseball parents thought this was absolutely hysterical, I would have been more embarrassed. I wish I had a picture of him in his gear - maybe next time. We can educate you all on the various pieces of gear and what they are meant to protect.
