The Boy started T-ball last night and I’m a little concerned. I have this dilemma between trying to not be super overprotective and standing up for my child.
Here’s the problem:
My boy is only 2 months past turning 4 years old. The cutoff date to start T-ball is to be 4 years old by March (he barely made it in) but the team he is on is ages 4 through 7or 8 years old!! First of all, 7-8 year olds should not be playing T-ball. Second, I do not need some hot shot 7 year old trying to get on base and running OVER my 4 year old. The Boy is big for his age (tallest, most mature for his class) but he is NOT a 7 year old!!
He did get to play with the coach’s son who is closest to his age prior to practice starting and he was enjoying that!!
They played around with the tees.
Almost time for practice to start!!
Daddy got to help with the hitting station. Our boy is a lefty, but we tried to see if he could do better as a righty…nope…he is MUCH better as a lefty.
Learning about what to do after you hit the ball. They ran the bases just for fun. See my little bitty boy amongst those amazon children, haha!!
He wasn’t paying very close attention and only got to run the bases once.
Getting ready to break up into groups for batting and throwing practice.
Okay, Moms/Dads/Coaches out there, I need advice!!
