A couple days ago I was in the kitchen making dinner, very grateful to my son for entertaining my daughters. They were all playing stuffed animal baseball. Basically, Zo’s puma turned into a ball, I’m not sure what they used for a bat, and they had made the living room a baseball diamond. I was enjoying listening to Kas explain the rules to the girls and all of them being so excited for Zo when she hit the “ball”. This went on for about 15-20 minutes when I heard Kas say, “Wait, timeout”. Addie asked why they needed to stop and Kas told her that there was a good song on and they all needed to go to the other room. Stephen was listening to Blur and that apparently superceded baseball for the minute. So they all went in the other room to dance.
My first thought was, would that make baseball even more fun, if all of the sudden the pitcher said, “Timeout, there’s a good song on.” Then the whole stadium had a great big dance party.
