Everything we do (or nearly everything) we do for our children. We take them to music class, dance class, playdates and various other activities geared towards them. Every now and again, however, we have the opportunity to take them to an activity that is not geared just for them but we can really enjoy as a family.
This coming weekend we are taking our son to his first baseball game (a surprise from my wife). My wife and I are huge baseball fans and my favorite team is in town. Though it is spring training, it is baseball nonetheless and we are super excited. Baseball is a game that can be enjoyed by fans of all ages and if the teams are smart, they add the entertainment aspect to engage toddlers through seniors.
There is absolutely no telling how our son will react when we get there. He may love it. He may hate it. I am guessing that he will have a good time especially as he is really into sights and sounds. Hopefully we will actually even be able to watch a bit of the game. We are not going in with high hopes simply because we do not know what to expect from him. As all parents know, one day can vary widely from the next.
I hope he wakes up on the right side of the bed and enjoys our nation's past time. There is only one way to find out...
