And so is mine.

April 8, 2011

Today was a big day for Charlie.  Dan took him to buy a baseball glove.  They also bought a little pink baseball glove for Elisabeth.  She will have nothing to do with it. Charlie doesn’t want to take his off.  Dan had to use his sternest voice to make Charlie set his glove aside for his bath.  After purchasing the glove, Dan and Charlie headed out back to play a game of catch (miss).  Charlie took right to it.  I think he has excellent pitching form.  Note his graceful follow through:

But I have to say, he’s a rather emotional baseball player. For example, after Dan tossed him one that he missed, Dan said, “Oops, sorry that was a bad throw.”  In response, Charlie collapsed onto the grass sobbing, “Daddy said that was a bad throw.”  Dan in turn asked Charlie to forgive him for those heartless words.  Charlie resumed the game.  Only to be felled minutes later (again by his emotions) writhing on the ground crying, “Daddy, you didn’t step forward with your foot when you threw that one…Waaaahhhh!”  Perhaps he should stick to one of his other favorite passtime: Flying. (see below)

This seems an appropriate post to close with a song that Charlie and Elisabeth have been singing around the house today (learned yesterday from Mr. Rogers).

“Boys are boys from the beginning./Girls are girls right from the start./ Everybody’s fancy./Everybody’s fine./Your body’s fancy, and so is mine!”

As I write this post, I can hear Charlie in his bed singing his own version: “Everybody’s fancy, and so is mine.”

    Charlie imagines himself as much bigger than nearly 3 –slow down a bit Charlie, being an adult is harder than you can possibly think!
