Baseball Season Has Officially Started...sort of


This post needs to start off with a big sigh from mom... as Reid decided he would officially start the baseball season off in our home "egg style"! The other night we all went to Sport Chalet to get Luke some new baseball pants. While we were there we bought a cute little glove for Reid (a left handed one at that...just like dad). When we got home we practiced throwing the ball with Reid who squealed with delight when the ball came his way. Well... apparently this budding baseball player must have dreamt all night of baseball for when he awoke in the morning and could not find his ball he resorted to anything looking like a ball...and unfortunately that meant the eggs. While I was out of the room this little squirt opened the fridge....found the eggs....and then flung them with all his might all over my floor...big sigh again. OH REIDer, ya lil stinker!!!! Luke even found the two eggs under the chair a few hours later. Good thing he is so darn cute!

Reid eggs are not for playing baseball, too funny.

Cheri, sighing apart, this is very clever of him... Just think about it, this kid will go far! May not where you want him to go, but far...

Cheri said...

Yeah Nan...far into my fridge! I am buying a lock!

Actually thank you...this is indeed clever of him and I was actually quite impressed...we all got quite a laugh out of it once the egg yolk was cleaned up...and then laughed again when hours later Luke found more stow away eggs that had been launched under one of the chairs. He's got an arm on him, that's for sure! :)

That's hysterical...and good to know that eggs don't appear to break on carpet! Reid is one clever little boy & so darn cute! I am making a note to myself to put the eggs on the top shelf!
