My baby's first "date".

No, I'm not talking about my 16 y.o. daughter.....

I'm talking about my 6 y.o. son!

A couple of days ago, I got a message from a mom of one of Jameson's classmates. (Hey Nicole!) She said that her daughter, Gracie, wanted
Jameson to come see her play t-ball on Friday night.
I asked Jameson if he wanted to go, and he got this really giggly,
red-faced, smile on his face and said "YEEEES"

So, this week's bribe to get him to behave in school was
Gracie and her t-ball game.

It worked really well! Only one marked-off sticker all week!
(This may work even better than the puppy bribe!)

As I confirmed the details of the game with Gracie's mom, Jameson was anxiously trying to decide what exact words he was going to say to her
right before the game.

"Gracie, your team is going to be the best!" ended up being the winner.

Once Jameson got home from school today, he constantly watched the clock....asking me a million times:

"When will it be 7:00?"

"4 more hours."

"4 MORE HOURS???? I'll NEVER get to see Gracie play t-ball"

"Jameson, it's not that long."

"YES IT IS! IT'S FOREVER!!!"

**Repeat this conversation every 15 minutes for the next 4 hours.**

Finally, Jameson's prayers were answered and we made it to the ball field. Jameson got out of the car and rushed to the fence yelling "HEY GRACIE!!!!!" So much for the well planned out speech.

They exchanged a few "Hey's" and waves, and then Gracie had to get focused on the task at hand....T-BALL! No slacking allowed for Gracie...her mom is the coach! And might I add, a kick- bootie coach, complete with black-sequined flip flops! (I am SO going to get a picture of those cute shoes at the next game). Jameson knew exactly when Gracie was up to bat and ran to the fence to cheer her on at each attempt.


Isn't she cute? (Well, from what you can see of her.)

The voice you hear screaming "RUN, RUN, RUN, RUN, RUN" is Jameson.


The Rockie's continued to dominate, and ended up winning 24-11.



After the game, Jameson and Gracie met up at the concession stand and said their goodbyes to each other. But, being the proud and blogging mama that I am, I just had to get a few pictures.



***SIGH***

I thought I would have at least a little bit longer to be the
one-and-only girl in his life.

  1. That is so cute. Either Jameson is really tall, or she is really petite.

  3. KBeau, it's both. Jameson is tall for his age and Gracie is just a cute, petite little thing. Jameson turned 6 in Sept and Gracie just turned 6 a couple of weeks ago...so there is a little age difference, too.
