So, yea I spend my life getting upset with people and situations and just loooooove to say the word 'Never', LOL! I'm never doing this or I'm never talking to so & so......well, you'd think I would've learned my lesson by now.
NEVER SAY NEVER........LESSON LEARNED
Yep!! Never say never people, cuz you have no idea what will happen the next day, next week or next year! I've been in situations where I refused to associate myself with someone or something after an incident & then decide to just throw my hands up and go back on my 'never'!
LOL, oh that has never been more true than what I did this weekend! After swearing up & down that I would NEVER have my kids represent WNY in anything, I gave in to a friend's request. I figured, I've done this in the past. I've said before I would never speak to someone & then go back to speaking to them, the relationship changed but I still spoke to them, so why should this be any different. It's actually more important because it makes my son happy!
After last year's debacle with the Little League president, I never thought I would allow my son to play in WNY again! But why not? If I don't, then he wins! And honestly, I'm sick of these games-he wins-we win-WHO CARES!!
I certainly don't anymore! I don't care what anyone thinks about me, my family or our parenting! People will always be judgmental, think they know better, and won't agree with your opinions & decisions, but again-WHO CARES!! I don't anymore!
Think what you want, say what you want-NOBODY can do me or raise my family and keep a husband and family together like I have! My kids are wonderful, very respectful and responsible! Many times I've had people approach me to say what a wonderful son I have-especially during baseball games. He is one of the few kids on, any team he has ever played on, that does not talk back, does not complain about what position he is put to play on or if he's benched, does not throw his bat or throw & kick his helmet around after a strikeout-he is a great teammate & I'm not saying it just cuz he's my son. Many people have said it and every coach that has worked with him has loved this about him. Guess who is responsible for that? His coaches, teachers, some jo-schmo on the street....HELL NO!! That was all thanks to his parents - that's right- me & my husband. Many have been very critical of us, especially of my husband, but you know what-my son knows what he knows & is who he his because of how we have raised him & what we have taught him.
It's our job as parents to guide & teach our kids and I think that we have done a WONDERFUL job!! I really don't care anymore what anybody thinks or has to say-if you are criticizing me & my family-you better look in the mirror and check yourself first!! Chances are-you have your own issues with your life & family!
So, no more holding back to avoid people or to avoid people from commenting--time to live & live the way we want!
I live in a crappy town, I will never deny that, but I have to make the best of it!!!
So here's to another CRAZY SEASON OF YOUTH BASEBALL..........LMAO!!!!
