The girls are playing t-ball/softball this year. They've never played before and I honestly do not know why we haven't had them on a team? The only reason it happened this year was because our new neighbors coach a team and we were invited to play on it! Yay!!

We had one practice on Saturday the 6th and then Sunday night at 9pm Dawn (our neighbor) ran over and told us we had a game Monday night!!! So Monday morning I had to go get t-shirts and get "Ladybugs" put on the front with their nicknames and number on the back! Talk about a whirlwind morning!!! LOL

We were late to the game because of some miscommunication on the directions. We left in plenty of time we just didn't go to the correct spot until the game was starting! To top it off, it was sprinkling. The girls were nervous! Oh, yeah! To back track, Monday morning when I woke Maddie up for school and told her about the game. All she could keep saying was, "Crap! Crap, crap, crap!! I don't know how to play the game!!! We've only had ONE practice!!!"

I chuckled about that all day!!

To make matters worse, Madison was passed while she was on 2nd base. The batter passed her because the 3rd base coach did not tell her to run. I felt bad because then there was an out. Which was fine. Lesson learned. Or so I thought. Next time the Ladybugs were up to bat, it happened again. In front of me a guy and a couple girls where saying. 'She just stands there!!!' 'That's the second time that's happened.' What's wrong with her?'

The 'momma bear' in me kicked in and I said, "Well, this is the first time she's ever played!!!!!" He says, " Has she been to practice?" Momma bear: "She went to the ONE practice we had!!!"

Guy: "Oh! Well, she will get better as the season goes on!" DAMN RIGHT SHE WILL!!!! I told myself!!

I told my mom the story and she wondered if the guy knew who my husband was?? I thought that was pretty funny. Apparently he didn't, but he found out at the next game!! LOL

Sean was coaching 1st base and the regular for 3rd wasn't there so the 'guy' had to coach 3rd.

Sean asked me later what was up with the 3rd base coach cause he didn't stay on the field. I told S he was the one who was talking about M! He said, 'Oh... that explains it!!'

The 3rd game, 'guy' had to coach 3rd base again and after the game S told me that 'guy' told him that your girls have made 'great advances'!! S said he was stuttering when he said. We think he was kissing hiney and not wanting a fight!!! LOL

Anyway, the 3rd game was really good! Taylor scored 3 runs and Madison hit a home run!! It was so much fun!! We got to get ice cream from DQ afterwards!! Thanks Maddie!!!
