Last baseball season, we took our son to one baseball game. And it happened to be the last or the next-to-last home game of the season (which coincidentally were the last games of the season.) We had no idea how big of a baseball fan he was until he came out sporting ALLLLLL of his favorite baseball items. This year, we vowed to take him to a game before the season was over.
This weekend happened to work in our favor with timing! It was a Sunday, the game happened to start at 4:30 versus 2:00 (which is usually the middle of our daughter’s nap time) and we weren’t as stressed about getting home. Today, Memorial Day, the boys had school. My son had a half day and my husband had to work. (This was a make-up snow day.) So we ventured downtown to see the Asheville Tourists.
My son was TOTALLY into the game. My daughter was into the music and clapping, but also wanted to climb stairs. Seeing how we weren’t on an aisle, this was inconvenient to everyone around us, as well as dangerous because stairs and a 2-year-old.
We stuck it out for half the game (the Tourists ended up losing both games they played yesterday) and then grabbed dinner before heading home. Next time we’ll probably find a sitter for her. But there will definitely be a next time this season.
Any tips on getting a toddler to stick through a game? Or part of a game? I had crayons, paper and a bucket of popcorn for her. 😉
