**This is me mentally preparing for a weekend full of baseball and softball.**
At the risk of sounding like, you know, a total mom…I have to tell you…I am slightly obsessed with watching my kids play the sports they love. Sports that we love. There’s nothing like watching your children work hard (really hard!), with teammates, towards a goal. Crazy practice and game schedules aside, there is just so much to appreciate about kids playing sports. From lessons on respecting authority, challenging themselves physically, and learning how to lose to encouraging teammates, being physically active, and learning how to win, we see our little athletes reaping so many of these benefits on a daily basis. Watching their character AND skills develop through sports has been, and will continue to be, an amazing privilege and something I love doing…so if that makes me a total mom, then so be it! I’ll wear that title with pride.
