Waiting for son to go pro and take care of his parents... Priceless

Who knew baseball was so expensive???

We did get a deal on some of those items like the glove and helmet but the pants about put us over the edge.

Our 10 yr old boy is a big boy and needed mens pants. We found some online for a great price, followed the sizing chart and ordered them. They arrived yesterday and are way too big.

We have been everywhere around here and online but now there is no time to shop online.

Tonight Jason found a store with the right size waist so he bought them, they are long though.

Brennan is only 5 ft tall but his mid section is bigger than youth sizes.

Joking aside from my post he has talent, he was born with it and we want him to explore it and do what he wishes with it.

He was born to play sports, when he was just 8 months old he walked around the house batting a lego with a rattle.

Yes I said walked :)

He actually took his first steps at 7 mos. 3 weeks and was walking across the house at 8 months.

Anyway he loves all sports and can play most sports well.

I know what you mean. I won't even tell you what we just spent last week on baseball camp, a new glove, a compression shirt and sunglasses (yes, sunglasses).

Gotta love their passion in doing what they love though!

Tell me about it. My sons are starting a dance class next month. It's $70.00 a month for lessons for the two of them. There was a $30.00 registration fee. Two pairs of ballet shoes at $18.00 a pair and $10.00 to $25.00 for tap shoes.

It's a racket, just as home improvement is. You need a new tool every time.
