Matthew pitched for the first time ever at one of our games last week. I was so excited/nervous, I was pretty sure Mama Coach could’ve used a Xanax.
He. Looked. Amazing. Yes, I’m biased, but still. The fact that my emotional, sensitive and sometimes anxiety boy could handle the pressure was so impressive (and, yeah, a little surprising). He did a good job of stepping off the mound and ‘shaking it off’ if he’d walked a batter or they got a hit on him.
Proud parenting moment. Sure wish my dad was here to share it with. He’d be (is) so proud of his grandson.
