A little while ago, Mike and I went to watch the younger son at a baseball game.  The younger son seemed like he was struggling with some ball-handling skills, so we decided to get some gear and practice at home.  One of the things I got was a baseball glove that Mike or I could use.

Or so I thought.

I found one that fit me well and bought that.

After using it for the first time, Mike came to ask me if I’d realized I’d bought a kids’ glove.

“How can that be? It fits my hand just fine.”

It turns out that not only can Mike not use the glove, but younger son decided he likes the new glove better than his old one.  His fingers are less than a half-inch shorter than mine.

Ah, the memories of the 1950s when my parents took us kids down to the park at the end of our block to play softball – as close as one can get to softball, at least, with a total of five people. Your sons are lucky to have you and your husband play with them.

You must have small hands is all that I can say. ; )

Small hands = why the violin is the perfect instrument for me. I tried to learn flute in grade school, but couldn’t handle some of the notes. However, my fingers fit pretty nicely on violin strings 🙂

Actually, one of the fun parts of playing ball with younger son is our very fuzzy short stop: Gigadog would rather play “chase me because I have the ball in my mouth” instead of fetch. 😀

Does Gigadog swing the bat well? The Twins need all the help they can get 😉
