When my kids were young, kid-talk wasn't in my wheel house. Some people are great talking to kids, with the "gootchie-gootchie-goo" - but it just wasn't me.
I went to my kids ball games, and school showcases and church presentations and I really liked watching MY kids do their thing but having to wait for all the other kids to do their thing was frustrating.
Both Crystal and Brett were very much into baseball and we enrolled them in a league every year. I have a recollection of a very young Brett in the outfield, sitting down, picking at the grass instead of watching where the ball was being batted. Many of the other youngsters were distracted as well. It was funny.
But now, I'm a grandparent of four boys and the fun has begun. Plus, they're cute. Check out these super-cute pictures. My grandkids are cuter than YOUR grandkids!
