True Story Tuesday

It's time for TST y'all, grab the button, post your story, and link up...it's fun times around here!!!




My boy started playing baseball when he was about 5 or so, teeball it was and Uncle Bubba was his coach, of course! The boy didn't share his daddy well and certainly didn't understand why his daddy wouldn't let him be the pitcher and bat first. He wouldn't listen to reason when we explained time and time again that being the first batter didn't mean being the best batter. He would throw hissy fits sometimes, one time even going so far as to get under the bleacher in the dugout and whine and cry and carry on while I was trying to be team mom and keep the girl corralled close by so she didn't wander off. During one particular game, the boy was in the outfield. Holy mother of God we look up and he's climbing the outfield fence. Uncle Bubba gets him down and in the dugout and asks him just WTF did he think he was doing??? Well, the boy says, you won't let me be pitcher, so I was going home! Oh hell yes he did, he was going home by climbing the outfield fence to escape...LOL

  2. Sharing Dad is a hard one to understand. Although ya got to give him credit for making a decision and standing by it and being able to climb the fence. ;)

  6. Too cute!

    All of the boys on my oldest's t-ball team would ONLY hit if they had a certain helmet on. So, after one would hit, they would have to switch helmets. It was crazy.

    Thanks for making my day and being my 1000 follower. :D

  11. Oh, my word. LOL

    My MIL tells me her oldest son got bored in the outfield once and turned around and "watered the grass". Right in the middle of the game. They gave up on sports with him completely.

  12. My kid just sits in the middle of the field when the game doesn't go like he wants. Gotta love Tball. Was he headed in the right direction?
