Batter Up: Little League With Your Uncle


Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 2.44.04 PMJD had his first T-Ball practice this Tuesday night. Last year, the team just played and ran around on Saturday mornings for an hour. We met my dad at the field and went for bagels after practice (controlled chaos?)

Now JD’s a big boy! He has weekly practices at night and weekend games every Saturday morning. I love that his practice falls on a weeknight that uncle Bri is free.

Yes, there were moms and dads at practice, but for whatever reason, the dads were on the field—and so was uncle Brian.

I’ve always been of the mindset I can do anything a dude can do, but JD deserves dudes in his life—he needs guys in his life.



Take a look at the fun uncle Bri and JD had.

He’s a lucky little boy! I got my teeth cleaned yesterday and Kristin, my solo-single mom hygienist who calls me Carrie Bradshaw,  was telling me about her son, D, and how she has a guy friend that is always there for him— “That’s all that counts,” she said. I feel the same way!
