So my daughter's talent show went great. They did awesome!!
Ok so I got up this morning and went to a softball clinic to learn how to coach little girls to play softball. Only to find out that everything that I ever learned to how to do regarding softball was totally wrong. I was always a great hitter, but come to find out it was because I was not standing properly and I was casting. Casting is when you swing to early and connect with the ball too late. So the clinic director put me in the right stance and now according to him I am a power hitter. LMAO!!! I am grateful that I am only an assistant coach because if I had to do this by myself I would fail miserably. As it goes I am pretty sure that I am in way over my head...
I am trying to figure out why my children do not have the ability to sit and entertain themselves with the thousands of dollars of toys that they own. Instead they continue to annoy each other and get into trouble. My son wants to do everything that his sister is doing. And she for the most part does not want to play with him because 4 years in between them is a giant difference. It aggravates me to no avail. I can't stand telling them to be nice to each other. I can't stand listening to them argue. So what do you do?
I remember when I was little, I was sent outside with my cousins and told don't come in until the street lights come on. We always had fun playing stupid things. We didn't need toys, we used our imaginations. What happened to the days of kids just going outside and digging a hole with a stick. or swinging on a swing until you reached the sky. or playing hide n seek. If I told my mom that I was bored, she would just laugh at me and tell me to find something to do...I think that there are too many things that are used to entertain kids today. They need to used their imaginations more and stop driving me NUTSO!!!
