Painting and TBall... TBall and Painting

Quite the pair, right?

Sure, I should/could have added in many other things to my title, but these are the two main things at the top of my head at the moment.

Stay with me, though. I tend not to focus much lately, so who knows where this post will end up? For now I will stick to painting and tball... besides, if anything else does come to mind I will not have any pictures available to upload for show and tell!

For weeks now we have had more chaos in the house than our usual dose. We have been remodeling EJ's room and it's dragged on longer than I expected... here is the color scheme for her "Princess" room, and let me tell yall - it is PINK!

We had Big Randy and his guys come in to put up beadbord, shelves and get it all ready for us to paint. That was before Easter... we'd moved ALL of EJ's furniture and toys from her room into Cub's room, and the upstairs hallway.

Okay, just for a second let me tell yall how unbelievably messy Cub's room is right now! And, everything is now all mixed together too... the Little Pet Shop pets are fraternizing with Buzz Lightyear and Woody. Her American Doll Bitty Baby "Scarlett" is getting friendly with Thomas the Train and friends... I do not know if I will ever get thir stuff all straightened back out.

Anyhow, I am coming to the end of this painting business... one more coat on the beadboard and delicately painting the crown molding and I am done!

Cub is playing TBall this spring for the first time and loving it!

Well, honestly he loves to bat and run the bases, but he isn't so keen on playing in the outfield.
He says that it is "boring because the ball never ever ever comes my way Mommy!"

I am not concerned as he is only 3 1/2, and tball is designed to be an introductory game to playing when they are bigger... besides, he is just too dern cute in his uniform!

See! He was so proud to put it on, the first night he slept in it. The next day he had to wear the shirt and hat to PreK too! At practice he was learning to run bases and the coach said to "touch base" as he went around. My sweet little boy bent down at every base and "touched" it with his hands... it was SO very cute, and my heart leapt, but I was also afraid everyone laughing would hurt his feelings. Cub is kinda sensative, but that boy was so excited about running bases it never fazed him one bit!

Time to go put the babies in bed and paint some more... or, maybe I'll just take it easy tonight and watch American Idol?!

YES he IS HANDSOME in his T ball uniform! I love that story! What a sweet memory for you. You can remind him of it one day when he has a child. Cant wait to see the room. Did you take before pictures?

Love that he touched the bases. Can't wait to see him play a game. You'll have to send me the schedule.

That is so cute about him "touching" the bases. Ball is so much fun!
The room looks like it is going to be very pretty just like your daughter.
