Tis' the season for shiny, brand spankin' new black cleats, stinky socks, and dirt covered boys.

I love every moment of it

Charlie (6) and Jack (5) are both playing T-ball together this year. One team makes for one happy mama. Same practice, same game schedule, and time to practice playing with each other and not against each other like they may or may not do at home. 
Seeing them out there in their uniforms makes them so official as big kids. 

Don't even get me started.

I'm weepy about seeing my two youngest babes like that. They may be more interested in playing around than playing the game, but that's what I love about T-ball. Actually, they played hard and I was proud. You know, the mama's heart bursting at the seams kind of proud. 

I'm a sucker for moments.
When spiked fevers and green snot seized the house, we relied on what we had in stock. In our casa it's rocks and minerals.

Which turned into a rock and mineral store. This teacher mama loves natural learning moments. Charlie wasn't messing around in his pricing. Who needs a lemonade stand anyway? That's so 1985.

Lady is starting to adjust. Our sweet girl is needing a lot of love and reassurance that we are the real deal. A good hairstyle makes all of girls feel better, right? Good thinking, Charlie. Now she just needs a mani and pedi for an extra self esteem boost.

Oh, and for the record I live with boys. Lots of them.

Further evidence...

I hope you have a fabulous week, friends. Enjoy the moments.

Much love,

Awww hope everyone is feeling better! I know just what you mean about them growing up, and how utterly adorable they are in their baseball gear, not to mention the dirt, sweat, etc. The fun of being a mom to boys!!!! I love it! And baseball season hasn't quite started here yet....another month or so. Can't wait!

This made me homesick for t-ball.

But not for whoopie cushions. :)

Have a good week friend!

I love the rock and mineral "store". When my kids were younger and wanted to make some money, they would gather up a bunch of stuff around the house and set up a store with prices. Usually the prices were outrageous, but I would gather up some change and haggle with them. I miss those days.

Melissa said...

Ah! THey look so big in those uniforms! I don't think there is anything more adorable then little boys in sports clothes!

Susan said...

Awww! How great is it that they're playing on the same team??
And I won't talk about the woopie cushion. I won't. Just to say, I'm not sure how many of those I have lying around this house! Boys and their toys I tell ya.
