Tonight, the boys' t-ball team (the Phillies) had a game against the Cardinals. If you are not familiar with these teams, they both wear RED shirts. Since this is t-ball, they do not have the benefit of home and away jerseys....apparently, not enough companies want to sponsor t-ball. Anyway, this can be quite confusing for everyone involved. It can be especially confusing for our little #4 (Drew) who is not always super interested in THE game! Before bed tonight, the boys were each talking about different parts of the game. Ben got hit with a line drive at short stop so, he mentioned that and he also tagged someone out at 2nd base. Jack was pretty excited about scoring each of the 4 times that he was up to bat.
Here was Drew's contribution to the conversation.
Drew: "Hey Mom, did you see me at 3rd base tonight?"
Me: "Sure I did"
Drew: "Did you see when I was at 3rd base and I forgot that I was playing a paditian (position)"
Me: "You mean you were playing 3rd base and you forgot?"
Me: "what happened?"
Drew: "Weeelllllll, I forgot I was playing a paditian and I started running home when the batter hit the ball. But, then I remembered that I was playing a paditian so I stopped."
