Introduction to family of the family of one of Zach's teammates:
Carla: Brenda, this is my sister-in-law from "hell".
Brenda to sister-in-law: Nice to meetcha, I can relate, I'm from there too!
Conversation with grandmother of another of Zach's team players before the second Saturday game:
Grandma of Tyson: Well you made it back, are you feeling better, have you cooled off?
Brenda: Oh yeah. One little old lady tried to run me down on the way but after those two cold beers I was ready and I left her in the dust!
During a tense moment during the second Saturday game while standing at the fence behind the Ump behind the batter. D'Quenton is up at bat, 2 on base, no runs.
Brenda yelling: D'Q, if you hit those runners in I'll give you $5!
Two runners in! Brenda $5 poorer but smilin! (ya gotta know how to motivate those younguns!)
When James called on Friday to tell me all the new granddaughter details, he said when they brought the baby out Alexis was so excited and then got so pissed off because they were taking HER baby away to the nursery. My son told me they were waiting for Jerri to come out of recovery, and when she did, they let Alexis ride back to the room on the gurney with her Mom.
I'm so glad the folks at the hospital let her be there so she could bond with her new little sister.
Jerri called last night to tell me about another Chickie moment. Alexis had just gotten out of the bath and was cold so Jerri got some warm clothes out of the dryer to dress her in.
Jerri: Here's your Scoobie panties, let's put them on.
Chick: Not the Scoobie panties, they get in my crack, give me the Dora ones.
Another reason to smile over the weekend.
