My Fun Friday Night

So, I have to tell you, tonight was a blast!! My sons play on a coed softball team, and they were one "girl" short.....they asked their poor old Mom to fill in, so they wouldn't have to forfeit! Well, I had a ton of fun!! I played catcher!! Fortunately you only stand behind the plate, you don't have to squat down the whole time!! I made 2 hits, brought in a run, and even scored a run. They actually won the game. All of the kids were cheering for me, and chanting "Mom, Mom, Mom"!! I recommend every Mom stepping out of the box and trying something like this. After the game, my boys were hugging me, and they told me that they were proud of me!! Proud of Me?? It felt so amazing!! I am always proud of them, and love being their Mom, but they were Proud of Me!! Truly one of my best Friday Nights Ever!!

Hi Valarie!
What fun! Don't you just love playing with the boys? I am a teacher and I just love hanging out with my little fourth graders and playing catch, even if I'm wearing a skirt! They see you differently...Have a great day! Anita

good on you!

I played with my students all the time - it was my only opportunity to be "Trisan" and not "Mr. Blakeman," who,frankly, was a bit of a taskmaster.

WOW! 1 yr my church was desperate for players & begged me to play(softball team) so i signed up- didn't hit or catch a single ball. the next year they were even MORE desperate but never even asked me! hahaha! i am going to stick to golf & running :)
