Proud Momma

So I never officially blogged that our first baseball game was a rain out and has to be re-scheduled. Tonight we are supposed to play and guess what MORE RAIN!!!! I think Jacob and I are going to die. We both are so ready for a game.

But I have to say I am one proud momma right now. I have really seen a change in Jacob since baseball has started. I have changed his nickname from monkey butt to my all star. I think he likes it better. But his self esteem has just shot through the roof. He has found his own - he has been in big brothers shadow for a long time and now he is the athlete now. He loves baseball - on practice days I come home from work and he is dressed, glove on, cup on, and water made ready to roll. I am like hey I need to get ready too stud!!! But when that boy is on the field he is someone so different than what I imagined when he started this. He really really wants to be there - he takes it serious. He has played all positions and I asked him what his favorite position was and his response was " Mom I dont care as long as I am on the field!" His attitude about baseball is better than my attitude most days. I am so proud of that kid right now! My heart is beaming!!!!


  1. That's so awesome! Can't wait to hear all the details from his first game!

  2. Get your camera ready mom - you aren't going to want to miss any of this....
