Hey! It's Monday!

Good morning dear friends! It's Monday and that means it's time for me to 'fess up again about what I did not do this week.



So, without further ado, it was certainly not me that went to Kai's first T-ball game and sat there gushing with a melting heart as her adorable little man hit his first single and bolted, with the bat still in hand, to first base. And it truly was not me, that fell in love with the third base coach (even more than I already am) when I noticed that instead of coaching third base he was taking pictures and video, on his Blackberry, of our precious boy scoring his first homerun. (For those that don't know, no need to freak out, the coach is my sweet hubby.)
It absolutely was not me that didn't care if T-ball rules don't include strikes or outs and that everyone gets on base and makes a homerun. I don't even care if it's okay that they pass homeplate and continue to first base again, like little man did, only to have to be turned around and run back to homeplate in order to complete said run. The kids were all adorable and little man was beaming with joy!

Oh, how I love this boy!!
(More pictures coming in a future post).

It really was not me that was in a really cranky, self-righteous, all-out bit*hy mood on Saturday afternoon. Nope, I am always happy, smiling and chipper around my family and friends. I did not leave everyone to do their own stuff and go take a nap, only to wake up and find this sitting on the kitchen counter.

Thank you, baby! You never fail to make me smile!

Lastly, It really was not me that agreed to let AJ go home with my sister on Saturday afternoon because they had built the coolest-of-cool sandboxes in their backyard. No way that it was me that must've moped around all afternoon missing my baby boy and secretly wishing I had not let him leave. No, that wouldn't have been me because that would have been mean and selfish. I knew he was having a blast and why would I not allow him that bonding time with his adored "Ayi" and sweet baby cousin, Seth.

Of course, when my sister called me to tell me that they were planning on going out on the boat with AJ, I was not only worried about my baby being on a boat without me (I was, but I knew he was in excellent hands) but I was definitely not a tad bit jealous that it was a beautiful Florida day and perfect for a boat ride, that I was NOT going on! No siree, it wasn't me that was wishing that she had a boat, although I am always saying they are money pits. Nope. I didn't continue sulking about it until I found something else to entertain me, like some of that yummy chocolate cake that sweet hubby had made.

Thank you, Ily for sharing such fun with AJ this weekend.

I look forward to Monday's because of you! I LOVE the T-ball story and your husband coaching AND taking pictures and you actually have a picture of him passing the homeplate...priceless!

It Feels Like Chaos said...

Oh how I love a t-ball game! I was a little sad that my boy moved up to coach pitch this year. The kids have gotten better so there are not the cute little kid mistakes, like hitting the ball and running all the way to 2nd with the bat, like my son did!

Michelle said...

That is the cutest little picture that you captured with Kai running by the base and Scott in the background taking a picture with his phone! He looks just too cute in his little uniform.

Michelle said...

p.s. Seriously... Scott baked you a cake? May I just say, WOW!!! Double WOW!!!
