The Easter Bunny Threw Up
I'm proud to say that we actually only bought three of the things on the table. The Bambi video and the baseball gloves. That's the best thing about having really young kids, they don't remember that they got all of this other Easter crap for the last three Easters.
We've known for months now that we wanted to get the boys baseball mitts for their Easter baskets, especially since their first tee-ball practice is next weekend. The only problem...we still don't know if they are right-handed or left-handed. We've been trying for weeks to pinpoint, even enlisting their teachers to help us out, but we still aren't 100% sure. Thing 1 seems to prefer his left hand for writing, throwing, and eating, at least most of the time. But not all of the time. Thing 2 seems to prefer his left hand for writing and eating, but throws with his right hand. But again, most of the time that is true, but not all of the time.
Superman is really rooting for them to be left-handed. First of all because his dad, Papaw Train, is left-handed and he (Superman) has a serious case of daddy-worship. Second, because he has big dreams of the boys being Major league pitchers one day, which they'd have a better chance of if they were left-handed.
I personally would like Thing 1 to be left-handed and Thing 2 to be right-handed. That'd make a perfect pitcher/catcher team!
For now, we bought three mitts. Two left-handed and one right. We are pretty sure Thing 1 is left-handed, but we got Thing 2 one of each, and we'll see which one he prefers and return the other.
