Oblivious

Bubba's baseball team won their first game tonight 6-5! They looked like a completely different team than the boys who took the field on Saturday. They looked like a team.

But Bubba, well, Bubba often lives in his own little world. As the team was running off the field, whooping and hollering, Bubba ran toward us exclaiming "Man, we've lost two games!"

"What?"

"We lost again," Bubba said.

"No you didn't, Bubba. You won!" we corrected.

"Oh."

"Why did you think your team was so excited?"

"Because the game was over?"

Ah, well. Despite his seeming excitement that the game was over, he is truly having a great time. And I'd rather he be his clueless little self than the little boy on his team who winds up in tears after every strikeout.

When I asked Xander about his baseball game on Monday he said "Momma - we had a really little number and they had like a really big number.......and I think that means that they won."

My favorite though was this fall when he played football - picture a team of newly turned five year olds. They would argue on the bench whether they were "coca cola" or "powerade" - the two sponsors on the scoreboard. They couldn't read "home" or "away" but recognized the the soft drink logos!

Good for you for teaching him to find his happiness wherever he can...whether it's because the game is over or because he won. :) Too cute!!

This is perhaps the most adorable thing I've read in a very long time!
