Off to the ballpark!
These two? OY. They crack me up. It was really good for all of us to be together, but perhaps not the best idea to let these two SIT TOGETHER. You never know what will happen!
We were seated in a section with LOTS of kids' baseball teams from a nearby town. And it was... interesting. When we first arrived, our seats were taken. No big deal. There were still lots of good seats in our section. Then, the people in our seats moved, and the seats around us started to fill up, so we decided it might be good to be in our correct seats, so we moved. Next, some kids between us and home-plate decided to STAND. We couldn't see what was going on, so we moved again. There were little kids in front of us, tiny kids behind us, kids running everywhere -- and all of a sudden, I was SO STINKIN' GLAD that my kids were grown up and sitting still in their seats, and that I wasn't totin' a diaper bag and all of the paraphernalia that comes with little ones! It was kind of a full-circle moment for me. Hallelujah - my kids are all grown up! I caught myself right before I leaned over to say this to my daughter: "I'm glad we didn't have to bring a diaper bag for you tonight!" I'm pretty sure she would've thought that I'd totally lost it.
There might've been some Krispy Kreme after the game... I'm just sayin'. We had come all that way -- which is not really "all that" at all, but we were closer to our one-and-only Krispy Kreme store than we would've been had we been coming from home, so... you know. We owed it to ourselves to stop. Just think of all the gas we saved!!! [Really. I should give classes on "How to rationalize the Krispy Kreme doughnut you just ate!"]
We laughed all the way home, and that's always a perfect ending.
