Welcome to the gun show…

My boy kicked major ass tonight, in his first game on the mound!!  Major, major ass.  Every out we made, was a strike out!  Every single one! 

I’m so proud of him. 

More importantly, he’s really proud of himself.  So proud of himself, in fact, that he didn’t even care that his team lost.  He was just completely happy with his performance. 

And for this kid…that is a big deal.  He does not lose gracefully.  Not one bit!  I have seen him throw some gnarly fits at the end of lost ball games. 

Not tonight.  Tonight, he played like a man!

That is awesome Nikki. As a sports nut, just knowing he played hard and good and stayed upbeat will transfer to him teammates.

Good for him! I'm sure you are a proud momma - and have every reason to be!

He did do great! He's an athlete for sure. And maybe a whole season of losing quite a bit will help him learn to deal with losing better. Just think of it this way, he's a passionate kid and there is nothing wrong with that, he just has to figure out how to bring his passion of the game down a notch when he loses :) How is his arm this morning?

Great job! I can't wait till mine can play sports! He has really good form!

ha! I think I am just going to take the pants he wore last night out of his drawer so he doesn't have the option to put them on. :) He looked so goofy w/those pants on. lol
