Disappointment Turns to Joy

A typo.  

A stinkin' lousy typo.

A stinkin' lousy typo kept Baby Bee's name off the basketball list.

The day after all the sadness and disappointment,  Baby Bee was called out of her after school program class and was told that her name was inadvertently left off the team list and she could join practice that very day.  

Baby Bee was sooooo ecstatic.  She told me she prayed that there was some sort of mistake.  And there was.

So now I'm a Dance Mom, a Piano Mom, a Swim Mom AND a Basketball Mom.  What's next?  Oh, I know what's next.  Shopping for basketball shoes.  

P.S.  Thank you for all your kind words for my girl.  They helped a lot!

    My son played basketball starting in 2nd grade all through high school and LOVED it! Lucky you it's such a fun game to watch.:)

  11. I love that her prayer was answered. Baby Girl had a similar thing happen last year, her prayers were answered too. Doesn't it just give you goose bumps!

  12. So glad it all worked out for Baby Bee! Sometimes I miss those days of running to and from sports and all of the other activities, but sometimes I can't believe I was able to pull it off while working full time. In the end, it's all worth it though.

    Best wishes to Baby Bee for a great season, but most especially for a boatload of fun!
