Bad News Baseball

in General

This started out to be a good morning. No fighting, no crying. Both boys(age 7 and 10) cleaned their rooms (and to my liking). Their bathroom is another story, but I will not go there.

Boy 1 (the 10 year old) has been waiting for some news about baseball. Last week he tried out for Travel Baseball. To him this is a big deal. He has tried out before and not made it. This was his year, or so we thought. We got the news this morning that he did not make the cut.

He is learning a lesson early on in age. It is who you know not what you know. I know that we are his parents and we tend to favor our children, but we have always been honest about them and with them. Boy 1 did well at the tryouts. There were kids who did fantastic and kids that looked like they have never played before.

Some of those boys who looked like they had never played , MADE IT! I do not understand this crazy world of politics with children. They have to deal with that enough when they get older. Those who work hard and show you their skills should be rewarded. Those who do not want to be there, but are there because their parents made them, think twice.

We took a bike ride and talked about and he seems to be doing pretty well, but I know he really wanted this.

We are going to try again!

Hi! It’s just so lovely to see kids finally make it in sports after trying. This really makes them happy and do better in school! David

I like the idea of being involved in your children’s activities. Whatever they want to do whether it is sports or music, let them choose what they want to do and more than likely they will stick with it.
