At Least This Time There Was More Excitement

The team was down 6-2. They had just come out of the bottom of the last inning holding the opposing team to no runs, and you could finally feel some energy building in the dugout.

The first three batters got on base and stayed on base. In other words, the bases were loaded.

And then my ten year-old son came up to bat.

And there was a pitch.

And there was a swing.

And the ball hit the bat perfectly.

The ball--that beautiful ball--soared over the infielders' heads, over the outfielder's head and straight out over the center field fence!

His first home run. A GRAND SLAM!

And I was cheering. And I was yelling. And I was trying to capture it on video. And I was jumping up and down.

And to go along with the theme of this season...

I peed.


Just a little.

That is so awesome. My boys are baseball players too, and there is just nothing like the smack of the bat and then seeing that ball sailing into oblivion. Good for him!! I would have peed too (and have, lol).

Chris H said...

Lawyer Mama said...

Midwest Mommy said...

Better right there than in the port-a-potty again. I don't want to be wheeling your butt around in a wheelchair in Chicago! (although I would if you needed me to . . .)

Worker Mommy said...

As I was reading this I thought now wouldn't that just take the cake if she peed after cheering on the homerun and lo and behold...

Now thats sheer excitement! (I know I'll be the same way when/if B or J has scores at any sport they may choose)

Maybe you could just start wearing rubber pants to his games. :)

Hey....if you have to be incontinent....seems like doing so immediately after your son hits a grand slam is as good a time as any! :)

Oh, The Joys said...

Ha ha ha! We should rename the team, The Kegels!

But it was a happy pee! :)

Dorky Dad said...

I would consider your son's first grand salami to be pee-your-pants worthy.

miss bliss said...

does it happen when you sneeze, too? oh, happy motherhood.

Josie said...

LOL!
Congrats to your son on his first grand slam and to you for maintaining a theme ;)

Jenny said...

That is awesome!

Southern Fried Mom said...

I got chills when I read that... The funny things is that I was already planning to comment, "If that had been my son, I so would have peed in my pants!!!!!"

PunditMom said...

That's OK -- things dry fast in the summertime! Congrats on the grand slam!

Ruth Dynamite said...

To have all that suspense and excitement culminate in pee was too darn funny!

CG said...

How awesome for both you and your son.
