Spring is here and so is T-ball!
Hello Sun! You are welcome to shine through my windows anytime! It is way too easy to fall in love with the 71 degree days we have been getting teased with. Today I got to reintroduce my feet to my flip flops, and I am happy to report that once again they are a match made in foot heaven.
Besides obsessing over how beautiful the day had turned out, today was also Issy's first T-ball practice. She has been claiming for the last two years that this is what she wants to do. Last night we took her to a sporting good store and proud Daddy helped her select all of the right gear. Truth be told, Issy got her athleticism from my side of the family. We play with our hearts, but our hand eye coordination is just downright sad. I am hoping that unlike me, Issy will just outgrow this awkward stage. Issy is the ONLY girl on her team. Its t-ball so go figure right? Anyway, she wouldn’t run at practice, she claims that she didn’t know all the rules, already after one practice she wants to quit.
I have always had strong feelings about letting our kids to quit (anything). I feel like by letting her quit we are sending the wrong message and anytime something gets tough we are okay with her just giving up. Sounds good right? Yeah, because now that we are going through this, I feel like it’s easier said than done. I think for now, we are going to make her go to a couple more practices and hope today was just an off day.
Brandon promised to teach her the basic rules of the game before the next practice. I am hoping that building her confidence is the answer.
Aaah....no one said being a parent was easy!
