Welcome to my new world, we are calling in the Land of Odd. As why can’t my daughter have a cell phone I purchased and have on MY personal cell phone count. Seems odd doesn’t it? Her reasoning is straight out of a lawyer’s mouth I’m sure, but really I have to communicate with my daughter on her phone. Same phone that is trying to be used against me in court. Never mind the kid gets free reign with a tablet and iPad, it’s not like she is new to this technology thing. What is the difference with a smart phone other than it has the ability to use a cellular service to make a phone call. If anybody knows about how to protect somebody online my ex-wife would be the first to tell you I have it covered. Just odd and quite frustrating.
Didn’t hamper the day though, nice weather for some softball! The blonde bomber made contact both times hitting the ball a grand total of six feet, and with her genetics (that’s a joke her mother and I run like a turtle trapped in molasses) she legged both hits out to reach base. I did happen to see a girl hit the ball halfway into the outfield (that is a SHOT for girls this age) and thankfully it was foul. I don’t know if she had little extra something in her Gatorade but the whole place had a hushed silence after she hit. A grinding pitching machine duel that Sloane’s team came back and won 3-2 in their last at bats. That makes us 3-0! Contact me if you would like to get playoff tickets and I will be more than happy to oblige. Psst….the games are free but if you are silly enough to ask me for tickets I’ll me more than happy to take your donation!
Going-Dad, Trust me they still like to play in the dirt and mulch at age seven!
Speaking of the pitching machine, can we go back to coaches pitching at that age!!!! Short girls have to tomahawk swing and tall girls swing like they are holding a two iron. Never mind I saw two different girls do a face plant against the machine tonight. It’s basically a ginormous tree stump right were the pitcher is supposed to be standing. Girls and boys at that age have succeeded for years with the coach pitching to them before the hideous invention of the pitching machine was brought into play. Stick it back in the batting cage where it belongs! Youth baseball/softball coaches are some tough hombres. They take line drives off legs and arms all the time in practice, so don’t give me the “safety” argument. The pitching machine is not fair for short or tall girls and needs to go away!
About it for the night due to softball got a late start, plus I’m not nearly talented enough and work a full time job to “schedule” my posts except for rare occasions. When I blog there is a 99% chance when it posts I just finished it within the previous hour. I think I will start posting my nightly post and then schedule it for optimum viewing pleasure on various social media outlets for the next day. I’m not sure if this is overkill or not. From a personal experience I know I miss people I like to read all the time but then I’ll see it show up on my Facebook timeline and be like “oh yeah” I wonder what happened with so and so and whatever situation. Ok I will shut up now, I’m going to research historic family law cases involving a child and a dad trying to let her use a cell phone. My conversations with my daughter should be “private” and hopefully very soon they will be!
