Little Boys in Little League

I've heard so many horror stories of parents trash talking at little league games that when I happened across this poem I thought it was such a nice reminder to all parents about the "kids" who are playing the game. I decided that it would make a GREAT hand out to parents on your little league team. Here is a FREE PDF Printable I created... ... Think about printing some to hand out at your next game.

Congrats Dad!!

The Dentist

The first trip to the dentist. Big A is old enough now to be going to the dentist. I checked into it and found a well respected pediatric dentist. I made an appointment. I told Big A how "awesome" it was going to be and what a big boy he is! Then I fretted. Being the queen of cavities (not from lack of brushing mind you) I have always dreaded the dentist, even just cleanings so I was feeling like a big hypocrite trying to build it up for the little guy but then I didn't want him nervous. I also promised a fun surprise after if he was a good boy (Bribery? really...I know but this was the dentist!) So we went to his appointment and ... everything went great. The assistant was so nice, the Dentist kind and thorough, the waiting room had a slide! What was I worried about?? After the "fun surprise" a trip to the merry-o-round at the mall, Big A asked "So Mom, now can we go back to the Dentist's?"...and I was worried?!?!
