We had a super low-key day on Mother’s Day, which was perfect. The day started off with a breakfast of donuts (yum!) and some relaxing around the house. We had plans to go to a Rome Braves game, but since it poured the night before and rained up until about an hour before game time, the game was postponed.
That’s OK, though! We all napped a bit — I while Joe took Lucy to McDonald’s (only because I could.not keep my eyes open), and Joe and Lucy later in the day — and then we had a late lunch/early dinner at Armando’s, one of our favorite restaurants. We hadn’t been there in a while, and it was a great choice because there were hardly any other diners there.
After we ate, we ran a few errands, which included getting Lucy a toddler t-ball set at Target. She was SO EXCITED. Seriously. Excited was probably an understatement. We also got her a baseball hat because she INSISTED that she couldn’t play baseball without one. And, even though the ground was wet, we stopped at the park on the way home so Lucy could play for a bit.
Lucy insists that the correct way to hit the ball is with the handle. Telling her otherwise just made her scream.
You know what also made her mad? Taking the bat to show her how to use it. That made her SERIOUSLY mad.
Eventually, she did try to hit it with the correct end of the bat. Unfortunately, she’s back to using the handle again. Oh well!
I love my little athlete!
