Kid Quotes: At the Baseball Game

At the baseball game

Kids say shocking, funny, sweet, wonderful, insightful, deep things. I am often caught off guard when the phrase is uttered, but I am thankful for the ways I am inspired or, quite often, amused by their words. I have decided to share a quote each week. If you have a good quote to share, please do so in the comments.

At the Baseball Game

We went to see the Blowfish baseball team as part of our Independence Day celebration. I wasn’t sure how Babycakes would do for the baseball game. How much actual baseball watching can a 4-year-old girl enjoy? I wondered. This was a girl who had not grown up going to games regularly.

She sat on my lap for most of the time. I told her about the game and encouraged her to participate by cheering for the team. She seemed to enjoy herself. She talked excitedly about the fireworks after the game. This excitement (only increased as the sun set) created a 1.5 minute loop of asking if the game was over and if the fireworks were going to start soon. Maybe there was more time than 1.5 minutes in between the question, but it seemed that way to me after the fifth or sixth time. Still, I felt impressed by her positive attitude with having the baseball game as her primary entertainment.

Today, I asked her what she liked about the game. Her answer was fast and took no thought. If you’ve been to a game, the first and last sentences will be familiar. (By the way, the music guy did a great job.)

Babycakes: Charge! Fireworks. Everybody clap your hands.



The fireworks were awesome–including a second finale. Sadly, Babycakes doesn’t understand that baseball games don’t always end in fireworks. I hope this experience has been positive enough for another trip to the ball game–even if there are no fireworks afterward.
