Today I am grateful for:
- The fact that even though baseball really is quite boring and even though our seats were way up in the gods and even though he did not understand at all what was going on, M really did enjoy his very first baseball game today. We cheered when they stole bases, we yelled ‘batterbatterbatterbatterbatter!” when the other team was up, we did the seventh inning stretch — Americana at its finest. We had a fab day!
- The absolutely perfect weather — it was warm enough but not too hot, with a really refreshing breeze, and when it finally erupted into a cracking thunderstorm (and, apparently, a tornado warning to boot), we were already safely home having a nice post-game cup of tea.
- The fact that my mum, as well as babysitting, cooked dinner for us, so that when we got home the house smelled delicious and we didn’t have to think of what to make — it was all done.
