Opening Day

Posted in Baseball, Elliott, Personal at 11:53 am by Nova Newcomer

Opening Day for ElliottIt’s Opening Day at Wrigley Field. I am a Cubs fan — ever-suffering, ever-loyal. Okay, I have an occasional affair with the San Francisco Giants, but I am allowed because I was born in a beautiful town that has no Major League baseball team. Anyway, I am a Cubbie. I still contend that there is no better baseball experience than the bleachers at Wrigley and I have been to some great parks. Yes, Red Sox fans, even better than Fenway (though Fenway is a close 2nd).

In 1908, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. It’s 2008, I have a newborn son who’s sleeping on my chest (hopefully, he will be awake for the 7th inning stretch) while I watch WGN and I am a big fan of serendipity.

Take me out to the ballgame!

    Cherish every minute of that newborn boy sleeping on your chest!!

    All too soon you will be planning to take him to his first real ballgame at a baseball field. (Which we are doing this summer.) And while those sleep deprived days seemed like they would indeed kill me, they did not and now he will be turning 4 soon. That all seems like a lifetime ago.

    Teach him all about the baseball, and why it is so much fun. Then when he turns 3 and asks for the “Batter Batter Baseball” and opens the package and cries, you will know the pride of it being the first present he cried over – and that the little baby that once slept on your chest really is a Momma’s boy, and he does love him some baseball!!
