Monday Mugs - Thankful Week 2


Are you in need of a mindless Monday Blog post? Are you struggling to deal with the weekend being over and can't muster the strength to type a single word? Well, Monday Mugs is for YOU! Because on Mondays, I need some motivation, I may or may not "borrow" ideas from IheartFaces and post my interpretation of their weekly theme.

Mondays are hard! Blogging on Mondays shouldn't be!

Today's theme for Monday Mugs is: Thankful: Week 2
______________________________

Last week, I was thankful that this boy got a Game Ball for having such a great game on Saturday.
My little slugger wasn't feeling well and made EVERY attempt to get out of playing. But with some clever bribery, I talked him in to participating in the game. They were playing their toughest competition of the season, and by the 3rd inning the other team was up 1-0 with a few of our REALLY good players striking out. Bailey got up to the plate with one teammate on 2nd and he hit the ball to bring him home and tie up the game. On the next hit, Bailey was able to make it home and put his team in to the lead. After that, the rest of the team followed suit and they were able to win 1-10. This was Bailey's first Game Ball after playing with this team for 3 seasons. He was due. I was so happy for him! He was pretty pleased as well.

Good bribery opening the door for Mr B and his team! Positive recognition always feels good. Way to go Bailey! SUPER STAR!

So this may ruffle some feathers, but my husband makes sure a different kid gets the game ball at each game. Even if the same kid should have gotten it every game of the season he spreads it out. There is ALWAYS something good that another play did that can be brought to attention.
