Thursday, August 01, 2002

We went to a ballgame the other night. It was fun. We were very close to the field in a new ballpark for a frontier league team. These boys play, not for the money, but for fun and to try and get noticed. Our team won. The kids enjoyed it.
Our oldest (almost 13) watched a foul ball come close and leaned over and asked his dad if the ball can be hit higher than it went. There were a few boys sitting in front of us that were about 10 or 11. One of them leaned over to his buddy and started making fun of our son. I wanted to ask him if his parents forgot to teach him manners. I knew I would embarrass my husband if I said anything. I just gave him a nasty look and he turned back around and slid down in his seat. He eventually moved. This same boy had been taking a foam claw hand and pulling all the fingers down except the middle finger. I hope my kids aren’t like that when we’re not with them. We’re almost always with them in public situations, but there are times when we aren’t. They’re good kids when we’re out together. We’ve had comments from people that we don’t even know that they are the most well behaved kids they have seen in a long time. They have good manners and don’t cause a big comotion.
I know when my kids are with people they are familiar with, they tend to take advantage. But the people who know them, know how to handle those situations. It does make it hard to get babysitters sometimes though.
Oh well, I guess you’ll have this.
